From the Pastor

Friends, this felt like the right blessing with which to begin our New Year together as we continue to seek to follow God’s Positioning System for our life together. May the Lord bless you, that you might be a blessing this year to many.


Blessing the Way

With every step

you take,

this blessing rises up

to meet you.

It has been waiting

long ages for you.

Look close

and you can see

the layers of it,

how it has been fashioned

by those who walked

this road before you,

how it has been created

of nothing but

their determination

and their dreaming,

how it has taken its form

from an ancient hope

that drew them forward

and made a way for them

when no way could be seen.

Look closer

and you will see

this blessing

is not finished,

that you are part

of the path

it is preparing,

that you are how

this blessing means

to be a voice

within the wilderness

and a welcome

for the way.
