A Message from Cathryn Marshall, Senior Warden

Dear *|FNAME|*,

Well, we’ve made it more than halfway through our Mutual Renewal time together!  How has this time affected you?  Sunday services are just a bit different with a variety of supply priests celebrating with us. Our Latino members have begun to join us at the 10:00 service while Fr John takes a break.  We’ve all noticed that people are absent from week to week as families take their annual vacations.  Many have joined in at the Mutual Renewal workshops where we have explored how God is calling us to live into our spirituality, and our life of prayer. We’ve learned about the power of healing and God’s grace.  Our next workshop will be led by our own Alicia Hager on Saturday, July 21st.  Alicia will be sharing her thoughts on lay leadership.   Have you stepped into a different leadership role during this time of renewal?  Have you noticed others who have?  Many of you have taken time to thank me for the work I’m doing as your Senior Warden. I want you to know that I really appreciate your support!

I’d like to invite you all to dig deeper during this second half of our Mutual Renewal time.  Click here to explore your Rule of Life.  This document came from the Diocesan Church Development Institute (DCDI), a two-year program I’ve been attending since last year. Beginning in 2019, this program is going to be restructured and presented as twelve one-day seminars instead of the current eight two-day sessions.  The new DCDI will be held at a church in Midland on twelve Saturdays spread out over two years.  I highly recommend it!

I hope you all continue to enjoy the warm weather, the beach, the picnics, and everything else that makes summer great.  Be sure to join us in welcoming Fr Jared, Bethany, and Lucy back to St John’s on Sunday, August 26th!
In God’s Grace,
