*************FROM OUR Dec 2019 – Jan 2020 CONGREGATIONAL NEWSLETTER*******
Dear MLC Church, I am pleased to be able to work as a vicar in your congregation starting January 19, 2020. After my theology studies in Hamburg and Vienna, I headed an exchange project enabling others to gain experience abroad. Now I am looking forward to the change of scene from the rural ambience of Berkenthin (near Lübeck) to the cosmopolitan metropolis of Toronto.
For the last two and a half years, as a vicar, I have grown into the practical work of a pastor with great enthusiasm and inquisitiveness. After completing the 2nd exam I am now looking for further new challenges. And for me, there is no better place to go to than Canada with my curiosity and excitement for all that such a change entails. Becoming a pastor is —and remains— an exciting journey for me. It is a search for God together with other mortals.
On the way there I experience a lot of openness and loving exchange — for that I am grateful! It is most appealing to be able to continue my quest in faith now in Toronto together with you. I am partial to hands-on faith, celebrated in an open community, and to good food. That‘s why I‘m especially looking forward to the Dinner Church project. I am looking forward to an intense time of collaborating together; of joint conversations, prayers, moments of silence, worship services; and to simply celebrate life with you…
In anticipation of seeing you soon,
NOTE: Vicar Caroline Raddatz is looking for a host starting January 2020. Please contact the office if you can help with accommodation. firstname.lastname@example.org
