Love is patient; love is kind;
This Sunday our 2019 vestry will be commissioned after spending Friday and Saturday at Roslyn Retreat Center in Richmond. Please pray for our vestry as we begin this new year together. We have a wonderfully diverse leadership group: Mary Yuhas, Anne Norloff, Seton Droppers, Ed Mott, Katie Wells, Manuel Figallo, Lyn Crawford, Suzanne Stephens, Ike Emejuru, Preston Findlay, Margret Hjalmarson and Mike Giaquinto.
The vestry has the very important function of shaping and implementing our vision for God's work at Saint George's. They are servant leaders, listening to our parish with open hearts and discerning next steps. Our reading from Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians this Sunday offers a lot of wisdom as we begin this new year together.
Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. it does not insist on it's own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth...And now faith, hope and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love."
Love is the binding agent for the universe and love binds us together in Christian community.
Yours in Christ,
