Or Both? (This is not our roof by the way!)
Our parish is in the proverbial (actually literal) ‘fix the roof’ situation; we have a roof in need of serious repair costing $92 thousand and at the same time we also have great potential for evangelical and justice ministry in our urban parish that has gone under resourced for far too long. We are just beginning to minster to African refugees just down the street, as an example.
What to do? The ‘boat’ is still in a ‘turnaround’ and I am not sure we’re healthy enough for a capital campaign. God seems to be saying ‘wait’ but the facility might not be able to (so what is God really saying?).
Wisdom from the neophytes wanted!
