July/August Letter from Pastor

FROM THE PASTOR

Why, why why? This is the first question our kids learn to ask, and it seems to be their favorite fro years. Why this, why that, why, wh, why? They ask this question because it is how we as humans grow and mature in our actions and thoughts. When the questin stops being asked, we stop seeing the possibilities because we are unable to see beyond the way we think and do things now.

Over the past several weeks, a number of you have commented on how glad you were that I was back as your interim. My response has shocked many of you. I've asked the old question, WHY?

I don't ask the question for any person gratification or to "puff" myself up, but to get you to think about what it is about my being back you like (or don't like) to help you to begin to articulate what it is that you are looking for in your next pastor.

This question of "why" will be one ask ask often. So yes, I get to act like that w year old - why, why, why. Why do you do what you do? Why is it important to you? All these whys will help once a transition team is appointed and begins working with the congregation in developing the Ministry Site Profile.

Why, why, why?

Your Sister in Christ,
Interim Pastor Diana
