Last Sunday's annual meeting had us electing 3 new people to our Vestry, the church board of directors. We elected Lynne Manganaro, Julia Rubio, and Heather Thornton. Thanks to all of you who were able to participate in the meeting.
Why do we have a board of directors? There are practical reasons like good stewardship of money and buildings, but there is an underlying spiritual reason. That reason is that ministry is a shared enterprise. When people call me the minister of the church, I know what they are saying, but sometimes I cringe! I could not possibly do all the ministry of Christ Church. In fact, most of the ministry of Christ Church is not done by the staff, but by each and every parishioner.
On March 27th, Easter Sunday, we will be baptizing several people. We claim that they are now ministers of the church.f May God bless each of us as we minister in Jesus name and with Jesus power and grace.
In Christ - Fr. Paul
