This past Sunday as we shared in worship the Gospel story from Matthew 16:13-20, I noted that I often hear those questions with an additional one. As Jesus asks the disciples “Who do people say I am? then “Who do you say I am?” I often hear added, “Who am I calling you to be?”
In recent weeks I have come to appreciate how important it is that we have reclaimed our identity as “the church on the square.” In the coming weeks, I will begin to share with you who I understand God is calling us to be and how to work as his disciples here on the square so that other lives might be changed.
God is fully at work in our lives and in our church. Thank you for your faithfulness.
