This past Sunday, we celebrated our first baptisms as a church. A wonderful time of celebrating God's work and bearing witness to the hope we have in Christ. I love the simplicity of loving God and loving others without trying to legislate every move. The Holy Spirit is an amazing guide that leads us where we need to go and how we need to proceed.
As a church we are seeking to live as Christ would in a world that needs love, mercy and grace. We placed before the church the names of four couples that are willing to serve as Shepherds. The Church is praying for them and about them. Our first Shepherding group will be ordained the second Sunday of January 2012. Wow! These are great "firsts" for us as a body!
