It is time for vision renewal! We are calling it “Holy Shift!”
Mark your calendars to be present on Feb 10 & April 6 from 9a-2pm. We will have a super-fun time! We will have fabulous food and fellowship, but more importantly there will be holy conversations to direct our ministry. You are invited! Your presence is desired! Together we accomplish so much more than individually. Our leader for these two dates will be our beloved Pr Dara Clifford, Associate to the Bishop and our synod’s Director of Evangelical Mission (DEM)! Childcare will be provided for this event.
So, what is Holy Shift!? If you google “Holy Shift”, you will find everything from Harley Davidson motorcycles to stories about miracles. Quotes like “Real cars don’t shift themselves” to the Bionic Woman, Lindsay Wagner sharing “When we shift our perception, our experience changes.” Quite a variety, but not exactly what is meant when we use it at CtK. Contextually, we have seen a shift in the church and in our world that resembles more of the seismic shifting like an earthquake. This kind of shifting comes quickly, unexpectedly, and rather dramatically to say the least. It is time for us to come together as a congregation and acknowledge the shift, listen to one another and our community, ask questions, reassess our energy, and explore how we do ministry in the world. That’s the shift part, let’s look at the holy part now.
When something has the world “holy” in front of it, we are talking about something that is ‘set apart’ for the work of God. That is us and what we do! Being intentional, working together, and infusing God’s grace and peace to others brings God’s love and kingdom to life. Please make an effort to be there and invite others to join you!
Christ’s Blessings & Peace,
