Walk in Love -
I love to walk. And I love our Bishop’s theme for this year “Walk in love as Christ loves us”. In my experience some walks have started off tame but because of weather or terrain or other factors become more exciting than I’d originally planned. “Walking in love” means we have some directions from Jesus, but don’t be surprised if it sometimes is more challenging than you expect. Hope you can join us this Memorial Day at Christ Church Laredo as we look more deeply into what it means to Walk in Love. Memorial Day Sunday is a perfect time to reflect on Love and Sacrifice.
SO CALL, TEXT, EMAIL FR. PAUL ASAP IF YOU WANT TO BE PART OF THIS GROUP WHEN THE BISHOP COMES IN SEPTEMBER!!
Our bishop, David Reed will be with us in September. As is customary we will have confirmation, baptism, re-commitment and reception. So if you are over the age of 13, and would like to make a more intentional commitment through confirmation, or if you were confirmed in another faith tradition and would like to be formally received into the Episcopal Church, or if you have been confirmed and or received, but would like to renew that commitment, please make plans to attend the classes or the make up sessions.
