Connecting Caring Learning Serving

Weekly E-pistle


One of the projects of annual conference this year was to pair clergy with colleagues who might hold opposing views to meet and share, pray with each other. Whenever I have a prayer partner I find it deeply meaningful.  But when the term runs out or the relationship changes, it is easy to lapse from this discipline.  Of course, it is easier to enter into these relationships if somebody organizes it and assigns partners than if we have to take initiative or risk rejection.  It might be something for us to think about this Fall, or you could take the initiative right now and find a friend to meet for prayer, and to check on the state of your souls.

The Endowment Committee meets on Wednesday, July 17 at 7:00p.m. in the Matthew Room.
