Join us this Sunday for our first discernment conversation!
“I am so afraid that I will never be who I once was. And I am also afraid that I will be,” Lutheran pastor, activist, blogger and theologian Nadia Bolz Weber recently mused as she reflected on post-pandemic life. We know, in our hearts, that we truly cannot just pick up where we left off in February 2020, either in our personal lives or in the life and work of the church. Too much in our world has changed, and as people of faith, we believe that God is always inviting us to faithfully renew ourselves and to be a people of Resurrection and new life with and for our world. If there ever were a time for us to ask ourselves: “What is important from our Cathedral’s past that we must carry forward?”, it is now. As well, if there ever were a time for us to be bold, brave, and to dream with God, asking ourselves: “How can we become the new creation God has in mind for us?”, it is also now.
Lay leaders from our congregation, Vestry, and I are looking forward to beginning the first of our bold discernment conversations with you this Sunday, June 13 to discuss our outreach, missions, and grants. We’ll meet in the Parish Hall immediately following each service. If you can’t join us on Sunday, join us online on Monday, June 14 at 7 pm on Zoom for a bilingual conversation opportunity. (Please register for the online session by Saturday, June 12 at midnight so that we can have bilingual interpretation available and so that we can send you conversation material via email.)
See you Sunday! (Or Monday!)
