Happy New Year! It promises to be an exciting one here at Holy Cross.
We are up and running with vestry teams forming as I write and the 2016 budget approved. With our business and financial affairs in place and on track we are now set to prepare for the next step(s) in our journey together as a church family. Our goal for the not-too-distant future is to add a full-time priest to our family to help us better continue Jesus’ mission in our community and beyond. In the meantime, it is important not to lose sight of this ongoing mission while we work toward the goal. The Renewal Works Program that you are currently learning about may very well be the tool that gives you/us the opportunity to do just that. One of the Renewal Works communication pieces states that “Your participation in this process will be a gift to our church…,” but I think it’s possible and even likely that our participation can very well be a gift we give to ourselves as individuals. Renewal Works has something to offer whether you’re ready for a brand new spiritual awakening or taking the next step in you spiritual journey and I look forward to sharing this experience with you.
Let us all go forth in the name of Christ.
