Dear First Pres,

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

     A few weeks back, Jeremy concluded his weekly letter to everyone in this way:  So, as you come to worship on Sunday morning, will you please ask the Lord to help us lean into this Community Building Initiative rather than lean away from it?  Will you pray that God gives you the energy and opportunity to connect in a new way with others in our congregation?  Will you pray that God helps us to be flexible and patient?  Finally, will you pray that God fills us with a spirit of joy because of the great work that He is doing in us for His glory?
