Last week it was, “all hands on deck.” This week it’s “sea change.”  The phrase is a quotation from Shakespeare. It comes from Ariel’s wonderfully evocative song in The Tempest regarding the sea’s transformation of the body of Ferdinand’s father:

Full fathom five thy father lies:
Of his bones are coral made:
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.

Our Healthy Church Initiative process will, with the movement of the Spirit, cause a sea change in how we see ourselves and what we do for our mission to reach new people for Christ in our world. I pray you will be part of that marvelous transformation. 

Breathe peace; anticipate joy,
