A Note from Pastor Linman Inviting Conversation

As I am amidst the final phase of my discernment and decision-making concerning the call from Faith Lutheran Church in Phoenix for me to serve as their pastor, I invite conversation with you, the members of Resurrection Church, that you may have occasion to express your thoughts and views and concerns. I am not drawn to making significant decisions on my own without consultation and holy conversation with others. Moreover, such conversation is in keeping with the collaborative spirit we’ve sought to build over the course of our time together. One such time for conversation is this coming Sunday after worship in the parish hall during coffee hour, when you are free to express whatever is on your mind and when I can also offer my own story of discernment. I also invite you to reach out to me for one-on-one conversation in the coming – via email, phone, Zoom, or in person. Should you desire this opportunity, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to schedule a time when we can talk. I’ll make a decision about this call on June 29.
