Pastor’s Corner (3/12/2020)

 In Pastor's Corner

Each week we produce a newsletter, we have a staff meeting with myself, Mark Miller, and Kelly Tyrrell. This is a time that we come to consensus on projects, update one another with our progress, and encourage each other to maintain our good work. One thing we do each week is take turns opening with a devotion. This week, the devotion shared by Mark Miller was so touching, that I wanted to share it with the whole congregation. This reading comes from Grace Church Cathedral in Charleston, South Carolina.
