From Sunday's message:

Most of the encounters with God start with the statement do not fear. Even the hardy people of the olden days had fear in their lives. And God was always trying to calm the people he spoke with down so they could listen and understand the message.
Remember this passage about worry?  I think worry is when we let our fears go so far that we cannot really live.  These kinds of fears are unhealthy.
The general point is that fear is part of our survival instinct. Moms carry that fear for kids before they are old enough to understand. We need moms and fear to make sure we are ok. We do not need our Fear to stop us from trying new things and really living.
En Agape',
Rev. Michael Weeks

The Search & Call Team needs your help to gather opinions and dreams for the Ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Virginia. It is our hope that every Disciple in Virginia will complete a survey. Your input will help us create a regional profile that will guide the team in the search for a new regional minister. The team plans to hold listening conferences all across the state beginning in the fall to share the results and further refine our information before we begin the search.

Information solicited by the survey address the following areas:
✦ Hopes, dreams, visions and priorities for the region within the next 5 years.
✦ Gifts, experiences, and commitments of the next Regional Minister

We ask all respondents to answer the survey one time, either electronically or on paper. Paper copies will be available in the sanctuary on Sunday.
