There are a lot of things I could write about here, and in the future, it will have a devotional focus, but right now, I simply need to say thank you from my family and myself to all the people of Holy Trinity!
We have been here for just about 2 months now and the hospitality that you all have extended us has been nothing short of fantastic. We were just sitting at dinner the other night as a family eating chili and my daughter asked, “Where did we get the chili from? I don’t remember anyone making it.” My wife responded that someone from church brought it over for us. Her response was, “The church has been so generous. We have hardly had to cook!”
It is true. Many meals that are brought last us more than one day because there is so much. Sometimes, we have gotten desserts like Whoopie Pies or cookies, and for some reason, they don’t even seem to make it to the end of the day!
But it is not just the food that has been provided for us. It is also the smiles, hugs and graciousness that you have shown us on Sunday mornings or anytime that we have been together at church or around town. All of you are so genuinely excited to have us here. It has made a big move so much easier.
As an update for you all, we are really starting to settle in. We now live in our own house and sleep in our own beds! The walls are painted, new carpet is coming and the next thing you know we will be hanging things on the walls. Our house will become our home.
I don’t know what the future holds from Holy Trinity. I don’t know what the future holds for my family and myself. What I do know, that for the time that the two paths are joined, it will be good. It will be good, not because of what we do, but because of what God has done and wherever we go together, God will be with us. Thanks be to God.
Grace and Peace,
Hope all of you are doing well! I have been here for just over a month, and as far as I can tell, things are off to a great start. I have done my best to sit and listen to people tell their stories off Holy Trinity and what they love about this church and the people that are here. I hope during my time with you that I am able to add to some of those stories as together we learn and experience God’s love.
My family is starting to settle in. We are looking forward to moving into our own house. That will happen in just a couple of weeks. It will be good to be in our own beds! I have to say thank you for the generous hospitality that everyone has extended to us. We have been fed, housed, and loved in tremendous ways this past month. Thank you for all you have done for us.
Lastly, I wanted to invite everyone to the Intergenerational/All Ages Forum this Sunday. I will be leading it and I hope it is a good time. While it will begin at 9:45, it won’t have a hard start time or end time. Food and drinks will be out until the beginning of the second service, so if you can’t come right at 9:45, it doesn’t matter. Come when you can and stay for as long as you can! (Have I been mysterious enough in what we are doing that you really have no idea but made you curious enough to come?)
Also, don’t forget, we worship on Wednesday evenings with soup for dinner during Lent. Soup (and Mac n Cheese) is served at 5:15 with worship beginning at 6pm. You don’t have to come right at 5:15 for dinner, just come before 6pm. The soup will be on and warm.
I look forward to continuing to meet everyone.
Pastor Krick will be making his first blog post shortly. Please stay tuned over the next week for semi-monthly thoughts from our Pastor.
