Welcome to Council Corner! September was tough month. Hurricanes, fires, floods, earthquakes. As I sat down to write this month, all I keep thinking is… armageddon. Things seem so bad, and now Las Vegas. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost and suffered so much.

It seems trite to write about the things we talked about in council. Trimming the trees, re-doing the door, passing LCP’s budget. We did all of those things. We discussed goals, we reviewed Pastor’s evaluation (it was great as I’m sure you all know) and we talked about solar lights in the parking lot.

But what my mind keeps turning to is… are we doing everything we can? Are we enacting the change we want to be responsible for? Is there more that we can be doing?

Please take a moment and pray for kindness. Pray for love. Pray for change.

Our next council meeting is October 23, 2017 at 5:30 pm in the Fireside Room. We encourage any and all who want to come. I might bring cake! God bless.
