In March the congregation of Glen Rhodes formally adopted its new purpose statement: "Working to build God's dream. Help wanted!" We are slowly getting used to the sound of it, and also asking ourselves, what dream?
No shortage of good thinking and good ideas about it, though, and a long history of justice-seeking at Glen Rhodes to guide us. Last Sunday the congregation reviewed all the ideas that members had put out there as dream builders, and narrowed the list down.
There is some exciting stuff, such as taking on a new justice issue, working with agencies and other partners in the neighbourhood to enhance the church's care for low income and vulnerable people, opening the doors to new families flooding in to the area. I'll get back to them in other posts soon. Stay tuned.
