Dear St. James’-in-the-City,
As part of the Rector Search Process, we have organized 3 congregational discernment events to reap your input and insights in order to create an honest and faithful description of St. James’ for the parish profile. These three events are not the same; they build on each other progressively covering:
1. Celebrating our history
2. Learning from where and who we are now
3. Discerning what and where God is calling us to be in the future
I want to thank the good people who came and participated in the first congregational discernment event on February 12, when we explored and learned from the great history of St. James’. The next discernment event – learning from where we are now – is scheduled on Sunday, March 12, after the 10:30 a.m. service. We need you, representing the spectrum of ministries and experiences, to come to this event to share your knowledge and experience of St James’ – our ministries representing Christ in the Wilshire area, our ministries in nurturing and supporting the church members and our organizational structure and relational network that support these ministries.
I look forward to working with you.
The Rev. Canon Eric H. F. Law
