Ep 14 - Pastoral Update for October 23

October 25, 2017

Hiya Friends — 

This last weekend I asked if any of you had noticed that we didn’t stand to read scripture the week prior (and how you felt about it). Last week I didn’t send out a pastor email.

Here’s the thing… the things that work at the beginning don’t always work in the middle. I/we have been lightly experimenting with some of our communities habits and rhythms to learn and understand. 

That being said, I am this weeks pastoral update is a podcast! Here are two ways to listen!

You might be thinking, "I don't listen to podcasts"... that's fair. I get it. So at the bottom of this email is a quick synopsis of the content. Also, maybe this would be a time to try a podcast out?
