Claire Olgren ~ Lay Autumn Ingathering Talk

Hello. I’m Claire Olgren and as Fr. Holmgren said he asked if I would be willing to share what I am thankful for here at Grace, how I see God at work in and among us. So in true Olgren fashion, I set about making a top ten list. However, within a few minutes I had a list that not only was too long, it was impossible to rank. So in no particular order here are ten random moments when I witnessed God’s presence at Grace this past year.   Please click this link to see the rest of Claire's talk.

God is at Work Among Us

Paul writes in Philippians these intriguing words: "God is at work within you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure" (Phil. 2:13).

Here are three things that we can do, as individuals and as a church community:

1) Look for, and discern, how God is at work among us

2) Identify and name how God is at work in these ways

3) Return thanks for, and tell others about, how God is at work among us at Grace Church
