We find ourselves in the midst of a very unusual time. The global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has forced major changes in our lifestyle as a community of faith. Although we've been pleased to offer in-person Sunday worship since the beginning of September with safety protocols in place for all church gatherings, we're now in the second wave, heightening anxiety and fears as to what the months ahead might bring.
Perhaps you feel this way. Let's not forget that Jesus promised something beyond the instability and uncertainty - new life in resurrection, the joy of fresh beginnings, a new mission to take the message of God's love in salvation and eternal life to all people. That hope can still motivate us as we continue through these challenging times. Keep our eyes on God's grace, stay healthy by taking sensible precautions, and cultivate a positive attitude. Jesus said, "And be sure of this: I am with you always." (Matthew 28:20)
Blessings and peace in the weeks ahead.
