Pastor's Monthly Perspective

Dear friends in Christ,

I have been in Sandpoint for about a week and a half now, and am totally enjoying the people and the community I find here. I look forward to getting to know both better as I continue in ministry here.

In the next few months I will seek to get to know you better as individuals within this congregation, and your passions, sense of mission, needs, and places to grow. I know God is alive and well here, and it is a bit like being on a scavenger hunt. In whom will I find compassion, and mercy, and justice, and generosity? Where will I be challenged, and questioned, and taught something new? Where are the bridges to the next quest damaged, and who will I find to help with the Spirit’s leading to repair the bridge? In what ways will I have to change the way I understand God’s grace in order to learn to travel this new – for me - journey in Sandpoint?

I am excited to be here, and look forward to the surprises of Grace that God has for all of us together here at the SUMC.

Shalom, Pastor Jo Dene
