I think from this you can see why our license plates say "In the Land of the Living Skies". It is also the reason I picked the name of my blog.
Today I attended a meeting for our Church Deanry area. Looking at all the people around the table I suddenly realised that the Church as I know it is changing. We are all aging and so far none of the younger people are stepping forward to take up leadership positions. I shudder to think what will become of us a few years down the road. I already juggle too many hats in my church community and was hoping to hand off a few in the next year or so.
We are doing some stewardship things in our parish to try and get some fresh faces involved, but so far nothing has been achieved. Today I suddenly realised that if I want new and exciting ideas, it may just be that I have to go out and beat the bushes, talk to the youngsters and get their input. I have a Parish Council meeting this week and plan on bringing up my idea. I know our priest will jump on board, it is the others that I am a bit concerned about!
Well off to visit all of you now. Everybody have a wonderful evening. God bless.
