Since the start of the new year, the vestry has been exploring what it means to be good stewards of our ongoing growth. Above all, it means remaining faithful to our mission: to share in the life of God for the life of the world.

At my ordination as a deacon, the bishop gave me a charge to work with my brothers and sisters in Christ to search "for the sick, the poor, and the helpless, that they may be relieved." Each Wednesday, we find them at JACOA, an alcohol and drug dependency treatment facility here in Jackson that serves West Tennessee.

As God continues to bless All Saints with more people, no doubt you've felt our walls close in a bit tighter. Our church is full of life, but it's also feeling a bit cramped! Such growth is exciting to be a part of, but it does raise the question of how we are to be good stewards of it.
