Thursday Thoughts – February 7, 2019

Scripture – Luke 5: 1-11

Reflection – Go Deep!  

Questions I have been pondering: 

  • What do we do when Jesus calls us when we are tired?
  • Do we struggle with obedience to his call?

Conflict Resolution Workshop

Wednesday evening, member of the Executive, Transition Team and other interested parties come a workshop where we explored our preferred conflict resolution styles and worked on some case studies, as well as entered into Lectio Divina on Matthew 18.

Interim Ministry Evaluation
Today, after the service, and a Potluck Brunch, Presbytery Representatives Rev. Dr. Susan MacAlpine-Gillis and Elaine Gray are going to lead the congregations in a process of reflection on the Interim Ministry. While this is the only formal opportunity to do so, the Transition Team always welcomes feedback and response. You might want to check out some of the Listening Circles Reports, you can find them here.
