Clergy Explore, Engage and Serve On Mountain Mission
This week twenty clergy joined Bishop Hahn in mission to the southeastern corner of our Diocese.  They beautified a public space in Middlesboro, cooked lunch and picnicked with residents of a homeless shelter in Corbin, cleaned and restocked a food pantry in Harlan.  

Members of St. John's, St. Mary's, and Christ Church of the region shared meals and stories of the joys and challenges of ministry in their parishes.  "This was a great opportunity to join hands in ministry, support these parishes, and a build fellowship in the diocese," said Bishop Hahn. "It was great to see the good work of another parish", said one participant.  "We saw God at work as we served alongside parishioners and other community people."  

Look for a fuller story next week.

What's God up to at Good Shepherd, Lexington?
Good Shepherd is a place of wide welcome. Be it a morning Eucharist, 1st Book Group, afternoon organ concert series, morning Centering Prayer or filling backpacks with food for Blessings in a Backpack at Booker T. Washington Elementary, the spirit of welcome permeates our common life together. The welcome at Good Shepherd is not simply guided by good Southern hospitality. Rather, it comes from the promises we make in the Baptismal Covenant to "seek and serve Christ in all persons..."
God's Spirit has been present as we have deepened our commitment to Children and Youth ministries through collaborative work with Ministry Architects. We have added staff and are expanding our equipping of lay leadership in these areas.
