A message from our new President.
As I reflect on our nine days together at General Convention, I keep coming back to the words of our Presiding Bishop-elect, the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, in his sermon on the final day of Convention. His message of love God, love your neighbors and change the world inspires me. As the hymn says, “Go forth for God…go to the world in peace…in love…in strength…in joy.” It is a message I invite all of you to embrace as you go about your altar guild ministry.
As your new president it is my hope and desire to increase awareness of NAGA and the services we provide. This is not something I can do alone. With your help and the help of each of our bishops, we can grow and share the blessings of our ministry not only at the parish level but at the diocesan and national levels as well. So I encourage you to, “Go Forth for God…” and receive His multiple blessings.
