While the repair needed for my office wall is not fun, the change in office space has been. (Big shout out to Todd and Adam who moved me in while I was at synod collegium!) I have enjoyed the new space. I appreciate the layout it offers for welcoming people in, the big windows and light, and the accessibility to others. My previous office felt a little too tucked away and out of sight.
No matter the office, you are always welcome to say hello when I am there. In fact, I’ve been thinking about how the pandemic disrupted our ability to have those conversations and meetings together. If you stretch your mind waaaaay back to 2020, we never even finished all our small group gatherings when I first arrived as your pastor – gatherings meant to get to know one another!
So, I have a summer experiment in mind. I invite you to a conversation - a “one-on-one” some call it – but it can be with your family or others. We can meet in my new office, at a coffee shop, or in your home. We could go for a walk. I would love to hear more about what is going on in your life and your family, what thoughts are percolating about our congregation, and/or what faith questions you might be wondering about.
The truth is everyone in the congregation can always request to schedule a conversation with me! Any time. But this is a little nudge for the summer….let’s talk.
In the midst of camping, hiking, and enjoying the summer, let’s have a conversation!
Peace be with you,
