"See? I am making all things New..." - Revelation 21:5
We are all connected to one another. From the moment of our conception, we are ignited
with a share in the Light of God’s Life. Through Baptism, that life is made new as we are marked as members of Christ’s own Body. In death, we believe that life is changed, not ended. In fact, we believe in life beyond this life… that our life in Christ’s love lasts forever.
As Christians, we are committed to supporting one another in our faith journeys. We welcome the new life that comes into our faith community through Baptism, and we travel with one another in faith through the mystery of dying and death, with unstoppable hope in the New Life of Resurrection.
This is why the grand Paschal candle, which greets us at the doors of church, is lit at each baptism and funeral… because by faith, we are a people born to rise. Let’s continue to pray for each other, and in a special way be mindful of parents choosing to raise their children in the faith and families grieving the loss of a loved one.
"But now, the God Who created you says to you:
'Do not be afraid.
I have saved you; I have called you by name: you are Mine.'"
