September 13th 2018- Pastor’s Letter

Dear Friends,

Many exciting events and changes abound. As you may have heard, we just hired three new people for open positions at St. Mark’s. Michelle Herman will begin her position as the Church Office Admistrator on Monday, September 17th, replacing our beloved temporary assistant Laura McHugh. Phoebe Currigan was just hired as our Sunday nursery caregiver so that parents of young children can enjoy the service by themselves if they choose, and the preschool hired a new teacher, Airyyus Wallace.

Speaking of the preschool, we are looking forward to celebrating the 50th anniversary of St. Mark’s School this upcoming Sunday! It will be a grand time with many alumni coming back to celebrate this amazing school and how it has shaped them. Afterwards will be a magnificent lunch. You can sign up through the church office by calling (858) 273- 1480 or emailing .

As we commemorate this milestone year of the preschool, I will be preaching on education, learning and growth. I don’t know about you but I love that we humans are growth seeking beings. No matter how old I get or how knowledgeable I get on certain subjects, God seems to always be challenging me to change my mind, gain new tools and constantly evolve into a better version of myself. I used to hate this about life. Why can’t I just be perfect? The truth is though, stagnancy makes life boring. And nothing is more exciting than growing, changing and experiencing life anew. I hope to see you this Sunday.

In the meantime, keep growing!
Lydia
