Wait, What Fire?


"Did you see it?”
"The smoke was blowing every where!”
“It was like a pyromaniac’s dream!”
“That’s why we looked like meerkats!"

These were some of the words of consolation I heard Sunday night as we kicked off our party. I later learned a fire was blazing somewhere in the neighborhood producing a tiny distraction. Thankfully, as far as we know, everyone is safe and all is well.

No matter, Sunday night was fantastic!! Despite the fire that blazed somewhere nearby, we gathered, celebrated, and feasted to God’s glory as God’s people! It was a wonderful night!

I hope the St. Bart’s Day Festival has you ready to roll into Fall. Pastorates resume this week - sign up info here - and Women’s Bible Study kicks off as well - sign up and info here. We’ll have other opportunities to connect and grow together as well. In the meantime, you won’t want to miss Baptisms this week and Confirmations the next.

It is exciting to see God’s work in our midst at St. Bart’s. We’re embarking on a great season as we follow the example of Bartholomew, our father in the faith, and the leading of our Heavenly Father in the power of the Spirit to proclaim the name and love of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Let’s be still and ready as we follow our Lord wherever he leads.
