…to the website of St. Michael’s Anglican Church in Wilsonville, Oregon. I hope as you read through you will get a picture of who we are and feel invited to visit us in person. Before you dig in, however, I would be remiss if I didn’t say a word about why we exist…
God made us, you and me. He didn’t make us robots; He made us living beings with the ability to choose to love Him, or to prefer ourselves and go our own way. Adam and Eve went their own way and the world has suffered under the weight of evil ever since.
But God loves us and hasn’t abandoned us. He came to earth in the person of Jesus, into our linear time and this finite place. He took upon Himself every bad thought, word and deed, in order to free us. Jesus gave His life for us. He made it possible for us to turn back to God.
In light of what Jesus has done for us, we choose to live differently. We are called.
You are too.
The Very Reverend Canon Robert Hawkins, Rector
a.k.a. Father Bob
