Dear Friend,

July 2013
John 17: 22I have given them the glory that you gave me, that
they may be one as we are one: 23I in them and you in me.
May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know
that you sent me and have loved them even as you have
loved me.

Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Risen Savior,

As I read the news recently of Microsoft's "reorganization" as
a company to more effectively promote its product, I was
struck by their use of the phrase "One Microsoft." They are
using this phrase to indicate that ALL facets of their business should serve the "whole." The
basic message was that every part of Microsoft is going to work together to achieve their
business model.
Interestingly enough, Jesus prayed that the Church may not be divided in the passage above
and a few verses earlier in John 17:11. Jesus knew that a Church united under God is an
awesome and powerful part of God's kingdom.
Calvary is blessed in that, despite our varied aspects, we are not hiding behind the structures
of "corporate walls" or divisions! I have been pleased to witness that every member is
interested in 'growing' Calvary, or more appropriately, allowing God to grow Calvary.
The Elders and I are going to be spearheading an effort to develop, define and declare a vision
statement for Calvary Lutheran Church and School beginning in September. As a
Congregation, a people of God, we will be examining what "ONE CALVARY" looks like!
This will allow us to examine everything we do in fellowship, education, social missions and
Worship in light of the overall mission of Calvary! We are blessed in that God has told us
WHAT we are to be about in the Great Commission. Where Jesus tells us in Matthew 28:19
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of
the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
The 'HOW' of this is left for us to faithfully carry out. And we KNOW this is possible because
Jesus closes verse 20 with this promise "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of
the age."
I would ask that you begin to petition God daily for how we can best serve God, the Family of
Believers and those who are DYING apart for knowledge of Jesus Christ as One Calvary.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Kelly
