| Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I am very excited that the Spirit called me to serve at Christ Lutheran Church this year! I give thanks for the opportunity to serve our Lord in this community and share in the many ministries of Christ Lutheran Church.
I am from Hickory, North Carolina, and attended Lenoir-Rhyne College, an affiliate of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. After graduating from Lenoir-Rhyne, I attended Wake Forest University School of Divinity and earned a Master of Divinity in May 2011. This past year, I continued my theological education at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, South Carolina, and received a Master of Sacred Theology degree.
Over the past four years at seminary a quote from Emily Dickinson continued to inspire and excite me. In many ways Dickinson's words encouraged me to constantly reevalutate and be present in my vocational and spiritual journey. The inspirational words are simple, "Dwell in possibility." As I learn more about the art of ministry this year, I hope that you will join me in dwelling in what is possible through Jesus Christ.
In Christ who makes all things possible,
Anne A. Jones
Intern, Christ Lutheran Church
