A Letter from the Chairs
The vicar’s message about the light that lives within us and the power that light brings to the Cathedral is an important step forward from last year’s message of “Belonging.” As members of the body of Christ, we belong—to God, to this Cathedral Church and to each other. This year’s campaign theme, “Many Fragments, One Light,” honors both the body and the spirit of our Cathedral congregation.
We come together from all walks of life, and for many reasons, to bring forth the light of Christ’s hope. We do it with our actions—as individuals, together, for each other and for the world around us. This is what Jesus meant when he implored the disciples to love their neighbors as they love themselves.
Feeding this this light requires not only the power of our spirits, but our financial commitment. This past church year made clear just how much of a difference your commitment makes. You embodied a church that shines a light on poverty and injustice, illuminates hospitality to the friend and newcomer, brings new light to spiritual exploration and glows every time we gather on Sunday.
God has given us each our own light. Each individual light has blessed us and helped show us the way. In the spirit of thankfulness, we seek to share those blessings with those around us. We ask each of you to prayerfully consider a financial commitment to the light of the church, so that others may be freed from darkness. We are so very grateful for your past support and your decision to belong to the Cathedral. At this stewardship season, we hope you will choose to continue your partnership through prayer, involvement and financial support.
