One of my priorities as your new priest-in-charge is establishing connections with local other local clergy. There are several reasons for this, but the first among them is to learn where St. David’s fits into the larger vision of ministry in our area.
With our unique location on the border of three Dioceses, we are blessed to be surrounded with other Episcopal churches working towards the common goal of spreading the Gospel, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and making our earthly reality a little closer to the heavenly vision.
We also have the privilege of hosting a number of upcoming inter-diocesan events. St. David’s is quickly building a reputation for itself among churches of the lower peninsula as a family-oriented parish with momentum behind it, and people at the diocesan level are taking a real interest in all the good stuff that we’re all doing here. To God be the glory.
As we’re thinking contextually and communally, I ask for your continued prayers for our church partners in Grand Ledge, downtown Lansing, and East Lansing. I’ll ask for a special prayer request for those working with the Canterbury program at MSU. We are blessed to be one piece of many in a great cloud of witnesses.
