Baptism of 15 day old

Whether it’s the start of Epiphany or the remembering of our baptisms as we reflect on Jesus’, these first days of the year brim with renewed hope and possibility. On the days when that optimism and promise flag, turning my attention to the work of the Spirit in these new worshiping communities brings back the joy and wonder of fresh dreams.

Eight years ago, when the General Assembly launched this movement, the number seemed huge. It still does. But it is a number that relies on the Holy Spirit. It is a number that represents a critical mass of congregations and communities in our denomination. It is a number that when reached can tip us over into a new day. It is a number that holds the stories of thousands and thousands of children of God who for the first time are hearing themselves named as beloved.

Every day, the Lord continues to add to our numbers. Read on to learn about new disciples who come to faith through brokenness, because of technology, and in prison. And as you hear these stories, may your hope be renewed, your faith restored, and your dreams enlarged.

Grace and peace,
