Time lives our lives with us
Walk side by side with us
Time is so far from us
But time is among us
Time is ahead of us
Above and below us
Standing beside us
And looking down on us…
Time has changed
Time would heal
Time will mend and counsel
In the end everything will be fine
-The Kinks (1968)
This is my last letter as outgoing Church Council President. I find it only fitting that the lyrics from the Kinks song, “Time” be quoted as I have been wandering around church the past month singing this song in my head as I think of all of the amazing ongoing events and service possibilities that allow those at Prince of Peace to donate their time.
Summertime is a refreshing time at Prince of Peace. We benefit from the wonderful addition of our summer citizens and the added bonus of a fresh and exuberant Church Council. This is also perhaps a mildly unsettling, but exciting time at our church with a newly appointed Call Committee. Time is also changing as we have a duo of wonderful congregants willing to share their time and talents as our volunteer secretaries.
Our time as a church congregation will once again be recorded by an amazing volunteer to be archivist. I have come to realize with the twenty years of time that I have spent as a participant at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, that time and talents are something we have in abundance at our church. Even with a transition period at our congregation, we need to remember as wonderfully sang by the Kinks, “Time mends, time heals, and in the end everything will be fine”.
Thank you to our new time and talent volunteers:
Secretaries: Mona Baran and Mary Feldman
Archivist: Kathy Evans
New Council Members: Dave Wilson, Eric Ingram, and Frank Pultar
