Sunday July 19th the people of Abiding Grace Lutheran Church celebrated the 10th Anniversary of their first worship service. It was a wonderful celebration despite having to be online and unable to celebrate in person. Greetings came from across the church and country including former members who have moved away and even from our Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton who joined electronically.
I brought video greetings emphasizing my gratitude that #AGLC has been a community that has always “found a way.” I quoted former UN Secretary General and Swedish Lutheran Dag Hammerskold with his famous words “For all that has been, Thanks. For all that will be, Yes!”
