Our Next Weekend 10/11 - 10/14 Camp Lee

Greetings & Blessings,

For those who don’t know me, my name is Gerry Jones, and I am the next rector for VDC #29. I first want to say I am very blessed and thankful to be called to be the next rector. I truly feel the Via de Cristo movement has elevated my faith journey with God. It is the soul reason I selected my theme on Faith. I have taken a two-way approach with my theme by reflecting on having Faith and being Faithful. Faith is the reason I selected the scripture I did for the weekend, which comes from 1 Peter 1 8-9. Faithful is the song I have selected by Ryan Stevenson and Amy Grant. In meditating on having faith, one must be faithful continuously through their own faith journey. Over the next several months leading up to the weekend, I hope you will meditate and reflect on the importance that your faith and faithfulness have on your own spiritual journey. During the weekend, I have selected specific people from the Bible who I have felt who have carried out both having faith and being faithful to our God as the decurias of VDC #29.

Thank you to all who have responded to serve for our Lord as a Team Member, Angel, or as part of the Prayer Chain. I would not be able to carry out this calling with out you all. I also want to acknowledge those who are not able to serve that your soul, faith, and spirit will be with us always. 

In closing, I wanted to reflect on a VDC member we have recently lost- Jari Robinson. I met Jari through the Via de Cristo movement and could immediately see and sense she was a woman of faith and faithful to her Lord and savior. She will be missed but her spirit continues through the VDC retreat and movement. I am at peace that she is with Our Lord and Jesus Christ. I am looking forward to serving our Lord the next several months in preparation for VDC #29.

Peace & Love Always,

Gerry Jones - Rector
