Last Friday, we had the pleasure of hosting Pastor Erica Lea-Simka from Albuquerque Mennonite Church for a delightful lunch at the ABQ FaithWorks office. Pastor Erica Lea-Simka embodies the spirit of unity that transcends denominational boundaries. We exchanged stories of our respective work that we are both doing within our community. One of the joys of our collaboration is the sense of mutuality. We recognize that we are not isolated entities but rather integral parts of the larger tapestry of our community. This fosters a sense of shared responsibility and a commitment to supporting one another in our collective mission to make our city a better place.
Working in collaboration with congregations like ABQ Mennonite Church brings a rich diversity of perspectives and resources. It allows us to tap into a wellspring of creativity, compassion, and community engagement that enriches our collective work.
