A 40th Birthday note from Rector Chris

Dear ones,

I certainly did not anticipate celebrating my 40th birthday in this particular manner, and yet it has been full of more gratitude than I’ve felt in years past. These times have opened my eyes and heart to more beauty and peace than I have known. There have been more moments of frustration and angst than I’ve known, too! Yet, the arc bends toward newness. I am so grateful that this community has played such a formative role in my life over the last decade. Thank you for manifesting joy, embracing resilience, living in love, and seeking justice. Let’s celebrate!
