The Church in the Forest staff wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I know the staff would agree with me that our congregation truly is a pleasure to serve. Our church’s special spirit has been shaped and protected by your intelligence, wit, and faith, always taking the long view (even the eternal view!)
We memorialized Ruth Gleisner two weeks ago, and the words I used for her apply to you all: “This chapel’s spirit is profoundly shaped by Ruth’s spirit of fun, of faith — and no drama.”
May we all strive to maintain our special identity, amid change and growth and challenge!
