2018 07 01: The Gift

At St. Augustine’s, we believe that every person, from the newborn with their special, squishy ministry of gentleness, and family healing, to the elderly with their wisdom and their great sense of peace, to the widow who loves to cook for busy young families, to the hobbyist carpenter who joyfully builds a handicapped ramp, every one is a gift to the community.

Each person, by virtue of breathing is a blessed offering that God has made to his church. Every one of you is a present to be unwrapped and cherished by the people in the pews next to you, by the people in our neighborhoods, and by the people in our city and world.
