Wow! What a weekend!!

What a cool weekend that was as we gathered (March 14-16) with our brothers and sisters in Christ in our neighborhood — the folks from Calvary United Methodist and Grace Presbyterian Churches!

My favorite images: the complete circle of people formed along the outside edges of Calvary’s sanctuary Friday evening, candles in hand, joined together in prayers; the buzz and excited conversations (and laughter and joy) in the groups at Faith on Saturday as we considered our future together in Christ; that full, joint choir packing the chancel at Grace on Sunday morning, a nearly even mix of voices from all three congregations.

Good things are sure to unfold as the new southwest Lakewood ecumenical steering group (with three representatives from each congregation) begins meeting shortly after Easter.  Stayed tuned.
