Dear Hennepin Community:

As we make our way into these fall days, we are never far from the beauty of God's Creation. The cycles of the season astound us and remind us of the ways in which our faith story is held in the Circle of Life and for that we are filled with gratitude.

On Sunday of this week, one of our dear ones, Jane Sieff, made her passage into eternal life. Jane was a long time member of Hennepin and faithfully attended church with her husband John. They raised their children at Hennepin and stayed connected while spending winter months in Florida. We will celebrate Jane's life on Monday, September 25 at 11:00am in the sanctuary.

As God's beloved, Jane was a gift to her family and friends, our church and the world. Let us keep her and those that loved her in our prayers. We know that God walks with us and holds us all in mercy, in life and in death, and in the promise of resurrection.

In blessings and peace,

Sally Howell Johnson
