At the end of July, four and a half months since our community ceased worshipping in person, we are going to take a pause. During the summer, life in church usually slows down. It is the time when clergy, staff, and volunteers have space to dream, to talk about new ministry possibilities, and to rest.
While Sunday worship will continue, as will the Wednesday Bible Study, in the month of August, you will notice quite a bit more space open in Holy Communion’s calendar. We’re going to pause Godly Play, Bible 101, Monday Night Studies. I won’t hold a Theology on Tap. We are going to pause.
As we pause, we also invite you to be in conversation. Get in touch with me, the clergy and staff, with our vestry. You’ll likely hear from ministry leaders asking about your hopes for our community in the coming months.
In invite you to pray with me as we take some time to discern. This virus isn’t going anywhere for awhile. We will all need to continue to adapt. I invite you to take some time to breathe, reflect, and move with intention to the next steps.
