Over the course of my short time here I often find myself gazing across the Mary Garden listening to the call of the Holy Spirit. Every now and then, she gives me a gentle nudge and sometimes a nagging which has led me to the following:
As we contemplate the working of the Holy Spirit here at St. Mary's, and what it means to be church, as we envision a process of reentry into our sanctury, I am seeking your input and vision.
How is the working of the Holy Spirit moving you in this community? What would you like to see St. Mary's become and how would you like to see St. Mary's live out the mission of the Church in this community of Stone Harbor and further out in the world?
I welcome your responses, no matter how great or small. Every contribution helps to bring clarity and vision.
I know that so many of our joyous occasions over the last couple of months has been entangled with so much of the world's woes from Covid-19, Quarantine, Loss, Division and Racism. I know many if not all of us are hurting or at the very least burdened in some way. This is when the church's unity in our Baptismal Covenant is so very important. Ultimately we are one Body in Christ. Every little nerve ending affects a limb or another part of the body. Let us remain in prayer with compassion and understanding for one another in Peace with Love, and for Justice. If you are feeling anxious in these times, please feel free to call and talk, email, or we can pray by phone.
