With the New Year we will have a new year-long theme. That is to ...“Be A Ship Builder.”
The definition of a shipbuilder from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary is “A person or company that builds ships” or “A business that builds and repairs ships.” Unlike Jethro Gibs from NCIS we will not be building this ship in the basement of our church and wonder “How we will get it out?” We will build/repair these ships each month and set them to sail. This year we will explore how we can build or repair a different ship each month.
Some of these “ships” will be familiar to you such as Worship, Fellowship, Partnerships, Stewardship, just to name a few. So I want you to think about what other “ships” that might need to be built here or might need to be repaired and let me know your ideas. I want to thank my sister and her husband, Sue and Dave Hunt for building the ship that you see in the lobby. As we did in a Year of Generosity we will tie different bible verses, songs to each theme. We will raise the first sail “Worship” to kick off the month of February. Will you join our crew? On the The USS Flagship “Arlington Hills Lutheran Church” Docked in Port, on the Eastside of St. Paul Let’s Set Sail and Have Some Fun!
