Episcopal Report Christian Alsted 2022

Writing this report, I come think about the apostle Paul’s words to the church in Philippi:

I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now.  I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.  Phil 1:3-6

I am deeply grateful for the ministry of our pastors, deacons and leaders on local and on annual conference level – I am seeing a church rooted and grounded in Christ focused on his mission. You are serving with boldness, flexibility and commitment, while you have had to adapt to one new and challenging situation after the other – thank you!
We are still in a time of reorientation and re-focus in a new reality as we are coming out of the pandemic. Some churches have come out stronger than before, while most churches have less people, and those who are still anxious or have developed other habits are only slowly returning to their Christian community.
