This theme brings our focus to God, who we can trust and who is working within us to care for this parish community, this city, the world, and the earth.
There are times that God’s vision is murky. There are days when the future and God’s plan is uncertain. That’s were faith motivates to learn through the scriptures, traditions and one another that God’s vision of unity, love and mercy is trustworthy. As the psalm sings, “though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult, we will not fear” (Ps. 46). The beauty here is that because of our care--to steward natural habitats on Ascension grounds, our care of another and our care to serve people in the most need---that our trust in God strengths. Your care truly matters!
Thank you for pledging a portion of your income to give to Ascension, support the long term work God is enacting through our local expression of the Jesus movement. -Mtr. Heather
