The Vestry has initiated a Discernment Process, looking to set five year goals around our congregation’s values: Welcome, Diversity, and Community. Leaders, community members, and the Vestry will gathering in small groups to talk about what is going well, the challenges we face, and the opportunities we see in the years ahead. We’ll be talking about these blessings, challenges, and opportunities both in terms of program and in terms of building/physical space.
Our Rector introduces the work ahead:
What is Discernment?
Discernment is a Christian practice around making decisions, a practice that asks us to slow down and pay attention. In discernment we listen, to our own needs and desires, to the will and wisdom of the gathered community, and we listen for the voice of God. As we seek to set our goals, and to address our challenges, we are casting the net wide. What are your hopes for Holy Communion in the next five years? We hope you will join us in this time of discernment.
Mission and Vision Prayer
Gracious God, we give you thanks for the legacy of mission and ministry at Holy Communion. May we heed your call in our own time. Give us the courage to Welcome all, inviting and including newcomers. Unite us and teach us to celebrate the rich Diversity of the human family. Lead us beyond our walls to better serve the wider Community. We offer this prayer in the name of your Son, who shared your vision and mission for the world. Amen.
