Apple Pie From Scratch
The astronomer and writer Carl Sagan once said, "If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, first you have to invent the universe."
This is funny and true. Our individualistic culture has many strong points, but when all is said and done nothing we have is fully the work of our own hands. We make nothing from scratch, but we are called to make things happen. We take what we find and move it along as best we can.
Next week the parish will elect new wardens and a new vestry.  In this final column, I need to say only one thing.  In my heart I believe that God is supplying Grace Church with whatever we need to accomplish God's purposes.  He has told us what is good and what he requires of us; to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with him.
