We welcomed Shawn and Katrina McConaughey to worship this Sunday. Shawn and Katrina have served among Friends in NWYM for the past 30 years. Most recently Shawn served at Associate Supt of Global Outreach and Pastoral Care. As it became necessary to leave the staff at the NWYM office, they began to look into new ministry options for this next stage of life. Just this last week they were approved to join the international staff of Friends United Mtg. They will live in Kenya serving alongside East African Friends. They will move to Kenya as soon as funding is secured. 

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (NRSV): Agents of Reconciliation
17 So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. 20 So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Queries:
How/Where is God calling me to be a presence of peace?
What hampers my willingness to live into this calling?
