Your Session met again this past week.
Every second Tuesday is “leadership night” here at Western. Usually, the Session and the Deacons meet (and work) together for a time over food and then split into separate groups.
We’re all eager to hear an update from the Plaza Task Force. They will be holding a listening session with the congregation and the architect following worship on February 24. The impetus for this was, frankly, a public health issue related to the homeless population and whether we needed a gate. With time and reflection, it’s grown to consider how we can use all of our outside space in a way that is useful, aesthetic and reverential.
We’re planning “a new thing” (if you’re biblically inclined, see Isaiah 43:19) in June that will include interesting and engaging activities outside of worship time. It’s an experiment – details are coming.
Also watch for the announcement of an Intercultural Vision Team that will guide our passage towards being an “intentionally intercultural” congregation.
There’s a lot in the planning pipeline right now. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned.
