If you are not a member of St. John’s, please understand that you are not dismissed at this time; there are two ways that you can actively listen to our message today: first of all, if you not a member here, I’d ask that you don’t hesitate to give some feedback—your honest impressions of this congregation. We always appreciate that perspective on our church and ministry that you can give as a visitor.
