  1. Dear fellow Christians, Episcopalians, Komo Kulshan Cluster Partners at St. James: Our haerts and prayers are with you in this time of transition. There is so much pain and loss associated with the closing of your building; weddings, funerals and baptisms that were part of your history. Looking at Jesus journey this is where he found God in those struggles with us. Knowing the strength of so many of you, knowing your faith in God and your support for each other, I hope you find comfort in Him that this opportunity could deepen your faith, draw you closer, and will bring all of us closer to you. Know that we grieve with you and look to God for His guidance. We pray that you will hear and feel the Holy Spirit in your thoughts, prayers and actions. In His Spirit, Betty Anne McCoy, Cluster Council Chair
