Dear Friends of St. Andrew’s,
Christian greetings from downtown Cairo.
This is a season of new beginnings. The start of school for many young people and teachers promises a new year of learning. New relationships with people are on the horizon as we engage new arrivals in our city and congregation. New opportunities for ministry abound, especially within the important programs for refugees. Within the newness, we don’t always know what to expect, but we will always be surprised by how the grace and goodness of God works among us. As we look ahead into this new fall of ministry, I hope and pray that these new realities will be filled with the surprising goodness and grace of God. God is with us to comfort, inspire and challenge us.
As always, if you have any needs, please contact me at the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
