Sisters and brothers:
On Sunday I was both amused and perplexed at the variations of opinions regarding the two new church lights that we had installed. (I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that “our folks” would have opinions!) It became obvious that there is a lot of interest in getting this right. It makes me wonder why we’ve not worked at getting better lighting before now!
While we are working on this, please bear with us. As was jokingly said during our announcements, we aren’t going to let this split the church! Whether you liked the lights on the left or on the right, you can be assured that the lighting pointing downward will be better than what we’ve had in the past. And with the addition of two more lights, we’ll have better over-all coverage. Hopefully everyone agrees that the new lights are beautiful and make a handsome addition to our worship space.
Now, on a side note, I want to urge you to demonstrate gracious hospitality this Sunday as we welcome Theo Simatupang to our parish community. (He arrives today!) Although he isn’t currently enrolled in seminary (we hope he will be able to continue in January), we’ll use him in worship and ministry as if he is our seminarian.
