WARDEN'S LETTER - MAY
We are blessed to welcome Fr. Isaias Ginson to St. Margaret's as our Priest-in-Charge.
“The same power
that raised Christ from the dead
is living in you!”
Having just celebrated Easter, we are empowered by the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring this Good News to the world around us. Jesus is Alive! Easter is also the time of year where we become filled with new hope, new meaning and new life. At. St. Margaret’s, not only are we blessed with the gifts of Easter and spring, we are also blessed to be welcoming Fr. Isaias Ginson as our Priest-in-Charge for the next year. God is Good! In the last few weeks that Fr. Isaias has been with us, he has been sharing many important lessons about forgiveness, responsibility to make God known to others, patience, faith and hope.
While it has taken us a little while to get to this point in our St. Margaret’s journey, now is the time to recognize that we all play such a big role in the life and future of our church. Jesus lives in and shines through each and everyone us. I know this to be true, because I see God’s love in the many, many ways the people of our parish seek to bring glory to God. Whether it is serving on the vestry or altar guild, being an acolyte, usher, Sunday school teacher or choir member, helping to maintain our beautiful buildings and grounds, feeding us at coffee hour or giving to those in our community, you are all giving glory to God. Your good work and support will be so important for Fr. Isaias as he begins his ministry with us at St. Margaret’s.
“Therefore encourage one another
and build each other up.”
With the power that raised Christ within us, Fr. Isaias to help guide us, and our desire to demonstrate that God’s word and work moves forward into the world through our deeds and actions, we are bound to make a difference in the lives of those in our community and beyond.
Personally, I’m so grateful to be serving together with the amazing people of St. Margaret’s Church to the glory of our Lord, Jesus Christ!
In God’s Love,
~ Kim Irvine, Co-Warden
“The great gift of Easter is hope –
Christian hope which makes us have that
confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph,
and in his goodness and love,
which nothing can shake.”
~ Cardinal Basil Hume
