On Being Church - a blog

“The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.”

William Seward wrote these opening words to a national “Proclamation of Thanksgiving” in October of 1863.

Hello West Raleigh friends!

It has been a joy to get to know many of you over the past month as I stepped into my role as the Director of Administration and Communication here at West Raleigh, and I am looking forward to meeting the rest of you sometime soon! In my short time here, it has become apparent that this is a truly special place, and I am so happy to be a part of it.

As many of you know, this position is taking a slightly different shape than in the past, with the addition of the communications focus.

Dear members & friends of West Raleigh,

After years of dreaming, planning, pouring over plans & getting up the nerve to do it; and with deepest gratitude to Ezra & Dorothy Howell, Frank Weedon and Marjorie Foil as well as a long list of Memorial gifts to West Raleigh Presbyterian Church, we will finally dedicate the Columbarium, restored courtyard and stained glass windows this coming Sunday, November 4th. This is a holy moment in the life of the church for so many reasons.

The Rick-Miller girls spend a lot of time at church. There is the usual Sunday morning, youth and family events, retreats, and potlucks that shape many of our lives; and there are frequent stops at church on our way to somewhere else because Mom forgot a book, or needs to drop-off something for someone else to pick-up, or to check on the occasional building project or sanctuary set-up. And, then there are The church meetings.

During the last several weeks you may have noticed people using headphones or ear buds during the worship service. Surely they weren’t listening to their favorite music during worship, were they?

No, headphone users are simply worshipers who want to hear better. They are tuning in using an ALD, an Assistive Listening Device.

“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:21). We are so grateful to be part of a church family that so exemplifies this verse. West Raleigh hands, hearts and souls help feed the hungry, build shelters for those in need, minister the community, assist refugees, and visit the lonely and sick. The list of caring goes on and on. This is a church with a really big heart. Being surrounded by so many kind, generous and compassionate people inspires us. It also changes the calculus of what is possible and how much just one person really can make a difference.
