Together in Faith: “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:37-38
It can be challenging to imagine ourselves as workers in the Lord’s harvest field. Surely that’s for the clergy, or church workers, or missionaries, or…? Actually, the call is to each of us, to work for the Lord in our own special family, workplace, school. All we need is to let loose the imagination and creativity of God’s spirit already present within us.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there will be an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Judy Hossack.
