Blooming...

February 20, 2015

Today, my Christmas cactus, which did not bloom anywhere near Christmas this past year, now has put forth its first blossom-with more coming. It makes me long even more for spring, although this iron-cold weather doesn't give much hope that it will be anytime soon.

Today is also an important day for another reason. Raymond is closing on our very own building for  Church of the Holy Trinity.  It has been a long journey these past seven years. Seven different places-many which opened up at the last minute when we had to move. Wonderful clergy and pastors from around the city who have supported us in many ways. Bishop Bena who first took us under his wing and then Bishop Dobbs faithfully shepherding and encouraging us. We were privileged to host at least seven ordinations through the years (we would joke about changing our name to "Church of the Ordination").

Even though we are going on eight years out, we are just beginning in many ways. There's is a lot of renovation to be done to the building which will take a while, but praise God, it is usable as is right now. Our main focus however will be about reaching beyond these walls to proclaim the Gospel to our community. In the midst of the chaos of this world, we want to be a light on a hill, a place of love and peace and sanity which is found only in Jesus.

Pray for us as we venture forth!
