I am looking forward to our being together for synod in May. Despite the far-flung nature of our province, or maybe because of it, our gathering is a great time to be the church. We have the opportunity to learn from one another, to support and to encourage each other, in the tough but fulfilling work of following Jesus and living our faith. Coming together from so many different places and situations, I know we will have a lot to share, and a lot to take home to the places where we serve God. I look forward to meeting you in person!
