As Fr Micah says at the end of the video: At this time, Fr Gregory and I, together with all the clergy and staff of the parish ask you to step forward with your gifts, your willingness and your love, and to offer your time and your talent. The next steps are for you to decide in which of these four areas you feel that you have the most to contribute. We'll be gathering together in small groups where we will discuss and decide on goals that we will actively engage in and enact over the next few years.
Here is the video, produced by John and Alexios Touloupis.
