A message from your Region Missionary:
We are finding ourselves in the middle of new and uncertain times. Over the last few weeks your clergy and lay leaders have acted fast and gotten virtual Sunday mornings and virtual weekday prayer (some have even managed Bible studies and formation classes!) up and running in a matter of days. We give thanks for our leaders who have moved quickly and decisively at this time.
As we now find ourselves at home, keeping ourselves and others safe with physical distance, we may find many different emotions arising—fear, anger, disappointment, courage, hope. As we continue to move through this season of Lent, I’d like to remind us that we believe in a God of Sabbath, a God of rest, a God of stillness and invitation. In these moments where we have slowed down, maybe even stopped entirely, I invite you to wonder where and how God might be calling you to do less, to rest in the Spirit, and to cultivate your relationship with God.
Your RM and Region Leadership Team have been brainstorming ideas for connecting us as a Region. Over the next few weeks we will be offering ways to join folks from other parishes in virtual community while also exploring some possible new spiritual practices.
We invite you to join in real-time via Zoom (links will be posted on
) or to watch a recording on our new Region
when you have time. If you have an idea for a conversation/gathering you would like to invite others to, please email Erendira at
to brainstorm and schedule!
I am always here as a resource and support, in the easy times and the challenging times.
