Greetings in the Lord’s name!
Suddenly—-SPRING! Now people tell me that we have to enjoy this, because in Door County, we usually go from Winter to Summer. But it sure feels like Spring to me.
Thanks to those of you who came to the African dinner and program. Connie and I had a great time preparing the meal for you, and sharing a bit of our story with you. Fifteen years is a long time, so we could go on for a long time telling stories. But thank you for being so gracious and spending that time with us.
For some reason, John chapter 3 seems to come around a couple of times a year. How much can we say about it? This week-end, I want to try to focus on the “Trinity”. It is Trinity Sunday. The Trinity is a difficult theological concept to grasp. I don’t think we ever do. But we’ll take a crack at it this week-end and see if we can get a “glimpse” of what the Trinity is about. I entitled my sermon: “God is Relational”, and I hope to share some thoughts about the “relationship” of the Trinity.
The churches are moving ahead on spring clean up before the Bishop comes, and that is great. Thanks to all of you who participate in that way. Our churches are beautiful, and we want to keep them looking the best that we can.
Then next week-end the Bishop will be with us. He will meet with the Vestry on Saturday afternoon. But he also likes to spend time “listening” to the thoughts of our members. Feel free to share those things with him.
We are getting closer to having the rectory work finished. We still have painting to do, putting up window dressings, putting in new ceiling fans, and then we should be ready to host.
With the summer coming, let us be prepared to welcome all of our visitors to our worship services. You are doing a great job in being open and welcoming at our churches. It does make a difference.
I hope this finds everyone doing well. Blessings, Fr. Olin
