The work of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in reaching out to the greater Green County area through various mission projects was recognized by Peggy Bean, Canon for Congregations in her presentation at this year’s Diocesan Convention on October 11th.
Canon Bean made reference to the film, Groundhog Day, in which the main character is stuck in the time loop of one day, commenting that many congregations find themselves in precisely the same situation. However, like Bill Murray’s character, when they begin to change, their relationship with the rest of the world changes also and enduring patterns can be broken.
St. Andrew’s has been striving in the past few years to change its relationship with its community through a variety of projects and this goal remains as a developing, continuing process. We value the recognition of others in the Diocese as we continue to grow and reach out to others.
