The coronavirus has changed our lives in many ways. As our rector Richard reminded us at the beginning of this pandemic, “We may feel at times that we don’t know where we are going; how can we know the way? Jesus reminds us that The Way is not a destination. It’s a way of being. God dwells in all of us, and in all who follow the way of love and do what Jesus does. Look for the signs, the cairns, that mark your way back to God and back to one another.” The stewardship committee, inspired by that sermon, has chosen the theme of “Markers on the Way of Love” for this year’s pledge campaign.
Our All Saints community has built many Markers on the Way of Love during these past months. Our ministry groups have continued to meet remotely to support our spiritual growth and our buildings. Our weekly family meeting before the Sunday service connects the youth of our parish together. Our Courageous Conversations discussions build our commitment to end racism, injustice, and inequity. The Outreach Committee’s support of MANNA and B-READY provides hunger relief in new ways with new parishioner support. We have called and welcomed a new Family Minister, the Rev. Tammy Hobbs Miracky. We hold our community close through online connections, and even in small groups outdoors.
Each of our actions places a marker on our path together towards realizing the Way of Love. Our spiritual and physical guideposts all help to ground us, make sure our steps are true, build our sense of community, and act on our responsibility to others beyond our parish.
With our thanks and blessings,
The Stewardship Committee
