This promise through the prophet Isaiah, stands as an ongoing prompt for our personal lives, and for the WPC congregation, as we move towards a a transition in these early Fall months. My plan and prayer is that the forward looking spirit engendered in the New Beginnings process will be nurtured and known. RECONNECT = REFRESH = RENEW, the re-up and retooling that happens with computer programs – new features for renewed possibilities – also apply in all our endeavors, including the shared life of faith!

Worship in these weeks is designed to motivate, reinforce and re-energize, even as the New Beginnings question remains vital and valued: “What is God calling this congregation to do and to be in this place and time? I look forward to seeing you in church for refreshing and reconnecting in these days!
