Dear Friends and Members of Rose City Park Presbyterian Church,
I’m in our very quiet church. The sanctuary is beautiful with the sun streaming through the stained glass windows. In my mind, I picture many of you here.
This is a fragile time for us individually and collectively. Our congregation is still the body of Christ as you live beyond these walls and in your homes.
A pastor friend of mine recently wrote:
Conversations will not be cancelled
Relationships will not be cancelled
Songs will not be cancelled
Reading will not be cancelled
Self-care will not be cancelled
Hope will not be cancelled.
May we lean into good stuff that is remains.
On behalf of Paulette and myself, know that Grace is that word of love God whispers in our ear…
“You are mine and I love you…not because of who you are, or even in spite of who you are.” You are loved simply because….
Yours in Christ,
