I am blessed to be able to join this amazing group of "The Faster Pastors" who started running together in 2012. They formed teams of 10-12 pastors who run in extended relays as they raised awareness for our brothers and sisters who are in need around the world and in our backyard. This year we are excited to have put together two teams of 10 pastors for a total of 20 pastors and rostered leaders. We are running on the Flaming Foliage Relay from Idaho Springs to Buena Vista for a total of 165 miles and three rugged mountain passes on September 9-10, 2016. This weekend is God's Work, Our Hands weekend with the ELCA. We see it as God's Work, Our feet as we run to raise money and awareness of Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountain and their work with resettling refugees in our area. Refugees are often running for their lives. We pastors are running to help them find a new life here in our area. Please consider making a donation for this amazing ministry. Thank you!
