Thursday Note - Feb. 21, 2019
This week we will be extending an extra welcome to one of our newest families at Fox Valley Presbyterian Church as we celebrate the baptism of Myla, daughter of Alex and Kayla who just joined the church a couple of weeks ago. I love how the celebration of this sacrament lets the church, the Body of Christ, enact what we believe about God’s love and welcome. Before Myla will even know what it means, we will declare that truth of God’s grace. Before she or her parents even know many of us by name, a whole community will promise to share in the responsibility and privilege of caring for their whole family. This is how it is with God. God loves us first. God gifts us with community. God calls us to care for creation. Thank you, Fox Valley Presbyterian Church, for being the Body of Christ to one another.
