Dear Saints of Emmanuel,
I can’t thank you enough for the welcome you have shared during our first two months together. Your faithfulness is humbling. God bless you.
I need your help.
Those 5 words summarize my primary goal with you for the next year. Listen, Learn, Laugh, Adapt, and Love.
So, please speak to me, so that I can listen.
Teach me, please, so that I can learn.
Show me what makes you laugh and what does not.
Be patient with me as I try and adopt your ways and adapt myself to you, the Saints of Emmanuel.
Risk trying to love me.
Risk letting me love you, love you with all that I have and all that I am.
Please reach out to me directly. I welcome the feedback. I welcome your reactions. I can’t promise you miracles, but I can promise you that I will prayerfully listen.
Honest Communication. That’s the key.
And so, I ask you to please reach out directly to me--with thoughts, or questions; with words of praise and words of constructive criticism.
I am happy to meet with you over coffee, or lunch, or dinner, or sometime in between.

I believe in you and give thanks to God for each of you, and I am delighted to be in your midst. God is with you, Emmanuel. Be Confident. Be Courageous. And Be of Good Cheer.
