From the Annual Report:

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”  John 13:34-35

 In the February 2013 edition of The Lutheran, there was a letter to the editor which began like this: “I have to agree that the church is more about how we treat each other than about programs. If genuine love is shown to one another there would be more people in church.” The problem with gauging how well a church is doing at being a loving congregation is hard to quantify. The numbers in this report show how well we are doing financially, and all seems well at this point. But the measure of loving-kindness is much harder to determine. The acts of love among the members of the congregation are most often known only by those who perform them and those who receive them. As I have witnessed the life of the congregation this past year, I would say that both within and outside the congregation acts of loving-kindness have abounded. This is not to say that we are perfectly loving people, there is always room for improvement, but that the general atmosphere of the congregation is one of love and respect for one another, for the stranger, and for the world. Jesus gave the command, “love one another.” By practicing this love we demonstrate that we are disciples of Jesus Christ and truly we are no just a congregation, we are the church. May 2013 be another year of mutual love in the life of this church.
