FAITH FORMATION

cindy anderson web poster.jpg

FROM FR. STEVE

In a cathedral in Copenhagen, Denmark there is a magnificent statue of Jesus by the noted sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. When Thorvaldsen first completed the sculpture he gazed upon the finished product with great satisfaction. It was a sculpture of Christ with His face looking upward and arms extended upward. It was a statue of a majestic, conquering Christ. Later that night, however, after the sculptor had left his fine new work in clay to dry and harden, something unexpected occurred. Sea mist seeped into the studio in the night. The clay did not harden as quickly as anticipated. The upraised arms and head of the sculpture began to drop. The majestic Christ  with arms lifted up and head thrown back was transformed into a Christ with head bent forward and arms  stretched downward as if in a pose of gentle invitation. At first Thorvaldsen was bitterly disappointed. As he studied the transformed sculpture, however, he came to see a dimension of Christ that had not been real to him before. It was the Christ who is a gentle, merciful Savior. Thorvaldsen inscribed on the base of the completed statue, "Come Unto Me," and that picture of the Lamb of God in His mercy has inspired millions.

MUSIC MINISTRY

Christmas was a busy time and we are first getting around to thanking all those who made our early December Christmas Concert possible. So many helping hands were involved but I particularly wanted to thank the following people who went over and above in time and talent to make the concert a success, who did more behind the scenes and weren’t in the spotlight:

Matt Myers - Volunteer Coordinator, David Schmit - Stage Manager, Jenna Alanko - Assistant Stage Manager,  Matt Belanger - Lighting Coordinator,  Jessica Cech - Orhestra Manager,  Chad Canon - Choir Manager, Ann Guzdzial - Music file manager. Special thanks to Jason Muxlow for designing a piano ramp and the moving crew who helped get it up and down from the altar, Tim Squires, Garth Hunt, and Nate Vanderklok. We’d also like to thank Jason and Melody Brewer for being our hospitality sponsors! Again, so many people helped out and I could name 50 people but we wanted to honor out loud these individuals who stepped up in very big ways. Our date is already set for 2018. Friday December 7th. We will be calling it the Christmas  Experience! Blessings, Dan Schmit
