I just spent some time looking at our monthly worship attendance for 2010. When you compare 2009 and 2010, we have doubled. Seriously. In our first year together, 671 souls gathered around word and sacrament. In our second year, 1281 souls gathered. Offering actually more than doubled ($5649 in 2009 and $12, 363 in 2010). Sheesh, if we continue in this trajectory--we'll grow ourselves right out of the Pilney Building. I am deeply grateful for this church--for your vision for what church can look like--for your willingness to listen and be shaped by the Gospel--for your risk taking--for giving one another the benefit of the doubt--and for your care for one another and your neighbors.
Luckiest. Pastor. Ever.
