newsletter excerpt

Copied from our August church newsletter:
As we begin our second year in ministry together, let me reiterate how excited I am to be serving Christ with you. I look forward to a bright future as we strive to serve the interest of not ourselves--but the interest of God.
To assist me in reflecting upon our journey--the ups and downs this past year, I reread our past newsletters. The below was in my introductory letter to you a year ago. I think it’s worth sharing again:
One of my many favorite sayings, The Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila, reminds us that:
     “Christ has no body now but yours; no hands, no feet on earth but yours;
     yours are the eyes through which He looks compassion on this world;
     yours are the feet with which He walks to do good;
     yours are the hands with which He blesses all the world;
     yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are His body.
     Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”

As we continue onward, I pray that God continues to provide each of us with abundant new gifts and graces for ministry. I will continue to lift you in prayer and ask that you pray for me as well.    God Bless,   Pastor Alan Gager
