Woodrow Wilson said the following in 1913 in his first term in the White House: “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world.”
We have had the opportunity to experience a man and woman living in this manner since December 2020. Pastor Gerhard Hille and Margret Hille had already made their living. They are retired, yet they strapped on their “big boy and big girl boots” to enable us to live into our abundance. Pastor Hille’s greater vision for our pandemic detour touched our spirits and filled our cups with hope, and we benefited from his hopeful vision which he expressed in his thoughtful sermons and calm leadership in our services. Margret Hille, in turn, offered her own splendid cooking skills to provide soups for Bowls and Blessings many times over. They each used their time and talents to enrich our world, even and especially during this pandemic time.
Pastor Gerhard and Margret, we are so very grateful that you came on this errand with such great success. Thank you! WE are certainly “the better” for all of your efforts!
