Thank you to the many parishioners who thoughtfully completed the spiritual inventory in September. Your input is providing crucial guidance in our shared work to discern the way forward for St. Thomas’. The RenewalWorks task force is reviewing the very detailed results and looks forward to presenting our findings at the February 10, 2019 forum. While that seems a long way off, there are some very positive, distinct takeaways gleaned from our early work that we wanted to pass along: 1) St. Thomas’ is blessed to be among the strongest of peer congregations across the nation in terms of stability, participation and support; and 2) we are clearly hungry for spiritual growth! With a strong foundation of beliefs, practices and faith in action, we aspire to continue to actively grow in our love of God and others. At the forum we will provide an in-depth summary of the findings and explore ways we might help each other go deeper in our faith. We pray for God’s help in this important work and deeply appreciate your patience and trust in us as we move forward.
