New Thoughts, New Year, New Presiding Bishop

elizabeth-eatonPlease take a few moments prior to our Annual Meeting (January 19, 2014) to read this article by our new Presiding Bishop of the ELCA, Elizabeth Eaton.  She asks wonderful, important, thought-provoking questions…questions that every Christian congregation can be asking about their life together.

Then, take a few moments to thank God for your elected leaders–your council members and volunteers who may be finishing their terms, those continuing their terms, and those just beginning their terms of service.  How can we be church, together, this year?  Whatever our dreams and visions reveal, what a privilege we have to be in ministry as one body of Christ.
