Chalk Outlines

Lizzie drew this on her drive way. Notice the notes!

When I say Family of Grace, what image flashes in your mind ? Is it our name, our congregation, or our building? Is it our theology, our biblical interpretation, or our worship style? Is it the faces of the people you worship with and work with, or is it the faces from the community that have been helped by our participation in God's mission in the world.

Too many times people think of church as a place to go. As we strive to be a part of God's mission in the world it is much more a place to be from. This fall as we gather for worship and learning and serving I hope you will find this a place that both gathers us in and sends us out.  And my prayer is that people driving by your house or meeting you in the community will recognize you are with Family of Grace.

Like Lizzie!
