Pledge Update

Each Sunday we close our worship together with these words: "Eternal God, Heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ." Note the adjective: "living" members, with all the passion, fear, joy, laughter, pride, humiliation, exhilaration, embarrassment, goofiness, friendship, contentment, sadness, musicality, frustration, exhaustion, loss, and love that being alive entails. God graciously accepts us as we are, wherever we are in the tumult, and knits us together to be stronger, more creative, and more resilient than we could ever be on our own. We are not passive receptacles of God's wisdom. We are called to be living members of God's body through Holy Comforter.

We are the body of Christ doing his work in the community and in the world. Stated simply, your financial support makes THE difference in how much we can reach out to others.

If you have not yet made a pledge in support of the ministries and mission of Holy Comforter for 2014, please do so as soon as possible, for time is running out for the Vestry to be able to discern what resources will be available for our needs and hopes. Please prayerfully consider the blessings that God has given you and pledge as generously as you can. If you have misplaced your pledge form, additional copies can be found in the parlor; or call Jeff Wiszowaty at 847/251
