Pastoral Epistle – March 15, 2022
Greetings in Jesus!
“I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.” Psalms 52:8
When we trust in the mercy of the Lord, we will be like a green olive tree in the house of God.
Let us continue praying for Ukraine and for peace.
Please pray fervently for our upcoming Vestry meeting on the 20th. The meeting will be only in person following the worship service. No need to pre-register. Kindly consult with the wardens if you have any questions regarding the voter’s list.
I am immensely thankful to our corporation, treasurer and envelope secretary for all efforts in preparation for the vestry. Looking forward to moving forward and growing deep and wide with the cooperation of our new leadership. My wishes and blessings to our children who are enjoying their March break. Have fun, stay safe.
