I imagine many of you watched the Oscars the other night. Some viewers were interested in what the stars wore while others hoped that their favorite movie won Best Picture or their favorite artist won Best Actor. There are so many categories at these award shows that there’s something for everyone to root for.
The thought occurred to me, “Who in Kinship is Oscar-worthy?” To my way of thinking, there are so many members and leaders who deserve an award for outstanding service.
Each active member brings a special talent to share with our community, and more allies than I can count work tirelessly to advance our standing in the church and in this world. At some very special churches, pastoral staffers take heat from union or General Conference officers for supporting Kinship.
What do all these individuals have in common? They love this community, a community where we all belong and can contribute to each other’s well-being.
There is still a lot of things we need to do together. Like our PATH program, an educational program especially for ministers and teachers, several projects need a helping hand. Become a star here in Kinship! I know you are Oscar-worthy!
Join us in making Kinship the best it can be in 2019!
