A Word from Laura: Next Steps Discussion

Western is at an exciting point as we consider growing as a church.  As you may remember, in our “Discerning Our Faithful Future” process, you talked about growing, whether you were discussing our family ministry, our commitment to social justice, our desire to connect with Foggy Bottom, or alternative worship.  As the Session has been talking about priorities, growing continues to come up.  Looking forward to taking next steps, we have an exciting opportunity regarding the next steps.
The Session and I would like to share developments regarding next steps with you, particularly as they relate to staffing.  We hope you’ll join us in a congregational conversation following worship this Sunday, meeting in the multi-purpose room (downstairs in Miriam’s Kitchen space).  
Come on downstairs following worship on Sunday.  If you can’t be there, we’ll be following up with more information next week. 
In the meantime, blessings for your weekend, with prayers of hope for the future of Western,
