It was a very full and inspiring gathering with the Alaska UMC lay and clergy leaders in Anchorage last weekend. I'm going to let my camera do the blogging here and post three video clips from the worship workshop led by Dr. Marcia McFee.
A big thanks to St. John for sharing Marcia with us and for Sandy Langland for this gift in memory of her mother.
The other highlight was the consecration of Girdwood Chapel's new building. There was no heat but a whole bunch of warmth in that holy space as Bishop Hagiya consecrated the building and ministries of Girdwood Chapel. Here are two clips.
The only concern I have is that there was not enough time for me to check in with everyone individually. We try to be good stewards of our time and as it is people still need to leave early. I just wish we had more downtime to just hang out and talk.
Grace and peace,
