“This is our work, and we can do it only because Christ’s mighty energy is at work within us.”
Adapted from Colossians 1:29
Let us begin with saying thank you for the affirmation of your vote to allow us to serve you in this position at this time.
We offer and share with you our collective greetings, prayers, healing, peace, and love. May the God who creates us, liberates us, and sustains us be with us all.
We would ask for your grace for a short while, as we figure out the transitional piece of serving in this role. We know the “who”, we are now discerning the “how” to best serve you, the people of God.
We sat in with our Moderator, Rev. Elder Cecilia Eggleston, Rev. Elder Héctor Gutiérrez, and Marina Laws on Thursday 4 February.
We received ample information about this new role that we gladly and excitedly embark upon. We look forward to the challenge and responsibility that you have bestowed upon us.
We humbly ask for your continued prayers as we discern how to best serve you in this pastoral and spiritual role bestowed upon us.
We look forward to sharing the blessings God has prepared for each and every church in this Fellowship.
In Jesus name,
