A Thank You for The Gift of Beloved Community
As we begin a new year, I thank God for each of you. We have a rare treasure in one another.
With the holidays, I am a little slow in getting this E-pistle out. Even so, I want to add this little, personal thanks to each of you. Teaching how to write and share a spiritual autobiography at the Osher Life Long Learning Institute at CSU, I have been astounded at how deeply people yearn for connection and community. Telling the stories of the meaningful moments of their lives and listening attentively to one another, they are profoundly moved. At St. Paul's we do that for one another. Each of you is a one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable gift to all of us. Thank you so much for showing up to worship, to pray, to reflect and to share. Together we really are one of God's beloved communities.
