I just returned from some time in New Mexico with family and friends. While there I had plenty of opportunities to talk about the renovations going on here in Clyde. The most popular question from my mom, siblings and friends was, “Why?”
Why take down part of this old beautiful building?
Why go through the upset, turmoil and expense?
The reason anyone does anything is pretty revealing. We Sisters have been looking at this from many different viewpoints, done studies and have discussed lots of options. The question of why comes down to the belief that this project will help us live our values more readily in an ever-changing world.
Wanting to be good stewards of God’s gifts of physical and spiritual resources, we could not move forward with hope without doing this. We pray that our “why” is blessed by God.
