The memorial service for renowned theologian and Stanford professor, René Gerard, was on Tuesday. It was a peaceful service in Memorial Church at Stanford; his son spoke along with other family members and academic colleagues. I invite you to explore his brilliant work through a quick Google search. Wednesday started on a much lighter note with 45 minutes of laughter in our morning Men’s Breakfast. Carolyn, Rick, and I then met to discuss an exciting new conversation on church membership – more on that soon! The week ended with another dialogue with Rick on our vision for continuing to invigorate our faith community.
Pastor Rick is in Boise, Idaho this week for his Mother’s memorial service. We have sent an arrangement of flowers for the service from the church. Please continue to be in prayer for our pastor and his family. He will be back on Saturday and will lead us in worship this Sunday, January 31st at 10:00 AM.
