Convener's Corner — February 2014

"This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
Psalm 118:24

It is easy to let the long days of winter get us down and it seems even more so this year with all the snow we have received and the many days with below zero temperatures. But we have much to celebrate and be thankful for as a Via de Cristo community. So, let us rejoice and be glad in it!

We are off to a very strong start in 2014. Our January weekends are well underway and we have additional weekends coming up over the next several months. Maybe one of these upcoming weekends is one in which you will ask that couple that you know to attend a weekend... or maybe your Renewal Group will palanca their time serving the Second Setting at the Agape Dinner... or maybe you will make it a goal to attend one of the Clausaras to celebrate with the new members of the 4th Day and thank the team members that served. Yes, Via de Cristo is very good.

Our Annual Appeal has also been very successful. A very special "Thank You" to all of those that have contributed to our ministry through your monetary gifts. We are truly blessed because of you and will use your gifts wisely. If you have not yet made your contribution, there is still time to do so. Please contact Jim at the Via de Cristo office or visit the Via de Cristo website for information on how to donate.

Via de Cristo is strong because of the leadership that many have given to the ministry. One way to serve is to volunteer your time and talents by being a part of the Minnesota Via de Cristo Council. The ballots for Council the open Council positions will be sent to all members of the 4th Day in the coming weeks. If you are interested in serving on the Council, please fill out a Council Application and email it to Jim at the office. The applications are located on the Council website. The positions up for election this year are:

Council members serve a three-year term. No previous experience necessary. You will get to serve with others who have a passion for this ministry and want to see us continue spreading God's Word. You will get to see first hand all of the good things that are happening and you will also be able to help us prepare for the future. Please consider serving.

Blessings to all!
