We got a letter from the mailman yesterday. A real letter, written longhand and signed. Imagine! Who ever heard of getting a letter from the mailman? Delivered by the mailman, yes, but from him?
Randy brought us the mail all winter. This spring his family chose to move to Kingston. He sent us a postcard from his new home. He wrote to Joan and me, saying thank you for time together, however brief (mail carriers move quickly!). He remembered that we had shared chocolates with him too.
This church is a place of welcome and hospitality, where each person is important. You are important. You matter.
Our mail carrier found sweets and welcome in your church. I trust you share that sweet hospitality too.
I send this letter with warmth as a reminder that you are cherished at the heart of God, and here in your church.
The Rev. Dr. Catherine Faith MacLean
