Dear Colleagues in Christ,
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ!
As you prepare to experience and lead your congregation into the scared of Holy Week and the celebration of Easter, I wanted you to know of my prayers for each of you. I continue to be blessed by the faithful ways in which you live out God’s call upon you. I celebrate the gifts of the Holy Spirit within you and am convinced that God will use those gifts and each of you in assisting others to experience, know and respond to the amazing love of God through Jesus Christ!
This past year and these recent days continue to provide challenge, as well as rich opportunities for us to carry out the mission of the Church and boldly proclaim and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These are exhausting days to lead within the Church, yet days that demand the hope and way of Jesus Christ that the church must exemplify and offer to the world.
I deeply value and appreciate each of you. May you be strengthened in your faith as you journey toward the cross and the empty tomb. May you be anointed in fresh ways as you lead worship and preach the good news. May you find strength in the midst of weariness and renewed joy as God’s Spirit leads and refreshes you.
Thanks for who you are and for all that you offer for the sake of God’s people and God’s kingdom!
