Greeting WAC community,
That night the Lord appeared to Isaac and said, “I am the god of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you.”
Summer ending and autumn beginning is transition for many of us, which involves change and perhaps a bit of anxiety and fear. Summer vacations are over. Guests who came for the Eclipse and/or to visit us and our beautiful western state have returned home. It’s back to school season. It’s back to work for some. Congregations have posted fall schedules for new studies of scriptures and other programs. Harvest time for crops is here. We make lists of what needs to be done before winter.
Yet September is my favorite month. It’s generally not too hot or too cold. It’s a time of new beginnings, new commitments and starting new projects, all of which is exciting. For the Wyoming Association of Churches, we have wonderful activities planned that I hope you can become involved.
