On Sunday at the annual meeting, I gave an update on the progress of our conversations. I wanted to update everyone here as well. First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone for coming to the Grace Conversations. It was so helpful for me to learn more about the history and perspective of the variety of people that make up Grace Lutheran Church.
As we are moving forward, the group that has helped me put the conversations together is helping me think through a direction and goal that we could do within the next school year (2018-2019) It is our hope to have some things narrowed down by the end of this month, then set that goal at the beginning of June. That would give us time to start the work of organizing and planning parts in June and July. Following that, in August we can really begin to advertise and offer a means of inviting people to really participate in the goal.
I realize that this is rather vague but that’s because I don’t really know yet where we shall end up and what God is going to call us to do. We are standing a on trail at the crossroads of many trails. The question becomes what do we feel we can accomplish and make a difference for the glory of God. Please pray for all the leaders and the whole church as we enter into this time of decision making.
