The origins of Anamesa are an interesting one. The name, as you might already know, means “between.” It’s an Ancient Greek word that I thought would make us sound smart and help us stay focused on something greater than ourselves.
Anamesa is more than a name. Last year our ministerial team has worked hard to teach a new way living out the gospel in the space between A and B. Up until today, my focus has been on A and B, and not the space between them.
As we set our goals and intentions for the new year, one area of focus on is community building and outreach. How we do this is the Holy Spirit’s job to reveal to us.
If this past year has taught us anything, we know we will need to embrace a faithfulness and a willingness to say, “Yes, And…” to our calling. Then keep our hearts and eyes open to see where that takes us.
