Dear Friends in Christ –
I just read Rev Cooper’s snapshot for this Sunday – You Can Use My Helmet, Love God.
My family and I are preparing to leave for a break. Yep, it's Spring on Tuesday and we’ll be taking a break from hectic schedules, deadlines and devices – a couple of days to decompress and to enjoy each other.
We’ll also be breaking away from incessant rants, screeds and tweets, from the reportage of horrifying disasters of genocide and bridge collapses – concrete and cultural.
But a retreat is only a change of zip code if one isn’t intentional in seeking re-creation, renewal and refreshment.
I’m taking this seriously. I’ll be listening to Sunday’s sermon once it's posted. I’ll be praying for you and for our church and for our country and for the world with which we’ve been charged in God’s confidence and in joy.
With great joy in being your pastor -
