Tim Cone has been a blessing to the parish. He has added a great deal of life to the place, particularly to those he visited in their homes or the hospital. He is required back at the seminary, and I have assured him of our prayers. One blessing he received was to partake in the parish “dinner invite.” The staff Christmas party was hosted by Carl & Rosemarie Schlenker and many of us were having dinner at their house for the first time.
We had some great food and told many stories, which helped us all come to know each other in a more personal, familial way. I most vividly recall the amount of laughter we all shared. Some of it at my expense! I am grateful to the Schlenker’s for hosting us and grateful to God for the newness of life we received through coming together as one body.
I pray that your discernment and “dinner invites” are filled with a new awareness of the people God has put in our St. Lambert family. Please do pass on any stories of having dinner at a parishioner’s house or inviting someone to yours. I am certain Christ is present, when we gather in His name.
