A Word from Our District Superintendent
February 22, 2015
Greetings in the name of Christ! As we begin the season of Lent, I am  reminded of the importance for us, as the body of Christ, to engage in a season of penitence. With the imposition of ashes, and the sobering  reminder of our own mortality, it is only from these depths of emotions that we can truly experience the hope of Eastertide. 
I am encouraged by the increasing focus on Lent that is seen throughout the district, with covenant groups, Lenten services, focused efforts to relieve suffering in communities, and much more.  These gatherings can only serve to heighten our awareness of the season. Thank you for your leadership efforts to make these opportunities possible for your congregation and your community. 
Don't forget that we have a conference opportunity to gather as well for the  Bishop's Day Apart in Montgomery on March 2, as we welcome Bishop Scott Jones to our conference.  If you have not registered for the event,  please do so soon!  Also,  laity are encouraged to attend, so feel free to bring them with you to Montgomery.  
This week,  I will be out of the office on Monday and Tuesday,  returning on Wednesday morning.  I will be at Blue Lake on Thursday for a CORE Team meeting. We do continue in a season of consultation with clergy and congregations with regard to the upcoming appointment-making session of the Cabinet,  so I would ask for your continued prayers. Please feel free to email or call should you have need of me. I pray that we will have a great week throughout our district! 
Blessings and peace,
