As the Springtime approaches we are in the midst of Lent, preparing for the celebration of Easter on April 1. Lent, of course, is the traditional season of preparation for Easter- as Christians we are to undertake a “spiritual inventory” to assure that we are ready to once again accept Christ’s offer of Grace that culminates in Resurrection. Several of us are in the midst of a study of the Apostles’ Creed in order to help us remember all that God has done for us.
As we work on this we are also in the midst of a “recovery period” as we work on repairing all the damage done by the flooding of our basement a few weeks ago. The drying out and removal of damaged wall sections has been accomplished; we are now beginning the process of taking inventory of all the items that are no longer usable and uploading that information to our property insurance company.
This is a labor-intensive process, so I know our Trustees can use your help. Greg Waltenberger is asking volunteers for help in getting this accomplished. He will assign rooms to people who volunteer and each “room team” will complete the inventory of damaged items in that room; that information then will be uploaded online to the company. If you can donate ANY time at all, please contact Greg and he will put you on a team. The more quickly we can get through the process the better it will be for us! And again, I thank you for being patient with your leaders and with each other as we work through this. It was a real mess, and there is no “easy way” to fix it all. But, as we are learning through our Fruits of the Spirit series of messages… patience is a gift from God! As are our kindness and gentleness toward one another.
In Christ’s Love and Service,
Pastor Larry Dimick
