RCWP BIshop Nancy Meyer Visits The Good Shepherd Community
On Sunday February 2nd, 2015 our Good Shepherd Inclusive Catholic Community was blessed with a visit from +Nancy Meyer, RCWP Bishop of the Midwest Region.She was accompanied by her friend Mary Core who visits Fort Myers annually as a seasonal visitor. The community welcomed both of them with open arms and greatly enjoyed their visit.
They participated in a spirited worship service as we all considered God’s steadfast love-from the rainbow, through the desert/wilderness to the cross and the empty grave and the surety of everlasting life. God’s covenant to be with us always gives great comfort in our own desert and wilderness times. In this Lenten season we are trying to keep our promises to God, to love God with all our hearts and to serve one another and all of God’s neediest children. From the waters of the flood to the waters of our baptism, we have the grace and the gifts to love God and serve one another.
After our joyful celebration we gave ashes to those who couldn’t be with us for Ash Wednesday.
Sunday was a wonderful day of celebration even as we determined to walk with Jesus and give ourselves to service throughout the 40 days of Lent.
