Pastor's Pondering - March 17, 2023

Dear friends -


As promised, here are my top five reasons I love the summer Sisseton Mission trip:

  • Community - several churches in the Presbytery along with several churches on the Lake Traverse Reservation get together to host a week of VBS, so community is built across churches and communities - and it's just beautiful.

  • Love and laughter - it's VBS after all, only with people so extraordinarily committed to making sure this is a wonderful and life-giving experience for the kids, our days are full of love and laughter.

  • Stars and wide-open spaces - there is nothing like the gorgeous setting of the South Dakota prairie and the bright sky at night.

  • Growing in flexibility. I'm not gonna lie - it's a little chaotic, and things don't always (almost never) go according to plan, but it helps us build muscles of flexibility even in uncertainty.

  • Opening ourselves to God - with Sunday in one of the Lakota churches, daily worship, sharing Bible stories with the kids, and evening reflections, we have had all sorts of ways we've encountered God's presence - sustaining, bringing joy, and building community.

Won't you consider joining in? Please email me or let Tom Ekin know if you are interested in more information. Register for the Trip Here


Peace,

Jess
