St. Valentines Rector Letter

We celebrate St. Valentine in February - so we are using Love as our theme this month. St. Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus, “Walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (5:2)  Making the decision to walk in love, regardless of what others are doing or not doing, challenges us to be the best we can be, to take the high road, and to ask God for help in doing so. Re-orienting our hearts to compassion rather than self-preoccupation, increases our own joy as well as joy for others.  
For fun, see how many cupids and crosses you can find in the magazine. There will be prizes awarded on Sunday, February 17.
Walking in love,

Pastor Linda+
