As we enter year three of the pandemic, our leaders are weary. This week we subsidized a respite retreat for ministry leaders on Galveston Island.
Jesus said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.
Pastor Morgan Gates, leading text study Tuesday morning:
We were privileged to have Pete Reuss with us. Pete is a stewardship specialist who has been helping congregations and the synod staff think about stewardship in a time of pandemic. He helped us respond creatively to the winter freeze and is coaching congregations in generosity, stewardship, and vision.
