Dear Corpus Christi,
Christmas eve and morning at Corpus Christi were a delight for the senses and the soul. It was wonderful to celebrate with faces familiar and new in our gorgeously decorated worship space resounding with joyful voices. Throughout the season we have been reminded of God’s continuing overtures to humanity and the positive responses human beings have demonstrated throughout history. As we turn towards a new calendar year may we all continue to experience God in the world and to reflect on the way in which we should respond to that presence.
The turning of the year is particularly significant to this community as 131 years ago on January 1st, this magnificent church was consecrated. It may be an appropriate time to think of how we might re-dedicate ourselves to what it means to be part of Corpus Christi, the body of Christ. Know of my prayers that the year to come will be one of health and peace for you and yours.
