I spent this week at a teaching and discipleship retreat with 9 other pastors in the Colorado Rockies outside Denver. It was a beautiful retreat location, and allowed for a time of reflection on my own stage of life, and reflection regarding Sinners and Saints. I was reminded of how thankful I am for everyone who has prayed for us, supported us, and walked alongside us on this journey.
Last Sunday, we planned out a few events for the summer: a churchwide retreat in early August and a time of serving and connecting with the U-District community in mid-July. As we continue to plan our future as a faith community, please join me in prayer. This week I was convicted of the need for us to focus not on the chaos and busyness of life, but on God’s life-giving presence. I would like to invite you to join me in praying the hours. I’ll post more upon my return to Seattle (I’m posting from Denver International Airport) about what the hours are, and how we as a community can join together in prayer and discipleship.
We’ll see you on Sunday at our place, read below for the potluck details, and tentative retreat dates. Give me some feedback on whether or not you’ll be able to make it.
Peace to you this week,
