Message from Pastor Herb Taylor
Hello from Herb,
It is exciting that Karl LaClair has started as the Director of Campus Ministry through the Wesley Foundation - A Boston/Cambridge Ministry of Higher Education. The Wesley Foundation has been a part of our church for decades and Karl now starts a new chapter in its ministry. I appreciated Karl's sermon this past Sunday and thought it would be a great idea for him to follow up with our weekly email newsletter to introduce himself and the ministry:
"For those of you who I have not yet had the privilege of meeting, I am Karl LaClair and I am the new Director of Campus Ministry here at Harvard-Epworth. In the few short weeks I have been on board, I have been amazed at how kind, outgoing, and friendly everyone is here at HEUMC. It has been a pleasure meeting so many of you already and I am very much looking forward to meeting more of you in the coming months.
I moved out to Boston eight years ago to pursue a graduate degree in theology at Boston College. After completing my degree, I taught ninth and tenth grade theology at a small school in Cambridge. As wonderful as teaching was, I really wanted to work in a more pastoral and practical way of helping people grow in their faith which took me to running a youth program in a church in Concord for a few years before coming to HEUMC to direct the campus ministry program with MIT, Harvard and other universities.
What is so wonderful about campus ministry is that it creates a space for undergraduate and graduate students to encounter the living God. Campus ministry provides opportunities for worship with other students, community building events, and service work. Through these multiple opportunities, students are able to come to encounter Christ in the busyness of their academic lives.
My hope as the Director of Campus Ministry is to provide the students I serve opportunities to meet Christ. My hope is to guide these students in their own spiritual journeys through the formative years of their college experience. I thank you all at HEUMC who have offered your support to this ministry over the years and ask for your continued prayers as begin a new year!"
Peace, Karl LaClair
Our church is blessed to be a part of this special ministry and I pray that we will all have a role in supporting this ministry in the years to come. Introduce yourself to Karl and ask how you can help. See you in church (this summer on Sundays at 10am through Labor Day Weekend).
