Dear Saint Markans,
Grace and peace to you on this glorious Easter Friday! I pray this note finds you well.
Please see below ECMN's announcement from last evening regarding the sale of the 1730 Clifton Place parcel to the White Earth Nation.
While we are disappointed that Saint Mark's is not the new owner, we nonetheless rejoice that our new neighbors share in God's work of increasing hope and healing in the world -- bearing light and love in the midst of darkness and fear and calling folks back to life from the grip of death.
Their work is ours and ours theirs -- their success is ours and ours theirs. Therefore, I invite you to join me in extending your enthusiastic and heartfelt welcome to White Earth's expanded Loring Park presence, praying with me for their transition, their growth, and their flourishing.
In the name of our Risen Lord, I am yours,
