Pastor’s Letter December February 2018
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
So, now we move shortly from the Epiphany season focusing on who Jesus is (What Child is This). God’s only son, the beloved, into the Lenten season focusing on who we are, God’s own children, (sealed with the Holy Spirit in baptism and marked with the cross of Christ.)
I invite you to return to the Lord your God for he is merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
Lent is a time for us to repent, to turn to God, return to the Lord. During this past Christmas celebration, it was great to see everyone. It was almost like a reunion. To see everyone whom our church has served, touched and been part of our lives. It seems to me that the church an our faith, is important to all of us. It has to do with relationships between God and us and between us and each other. This took place over many years - Sunday School, 1st Holy Communion, Confirmation instruction for your young people, marriages, funerals - Our Redeemer has been there for you..
