A new Executive Order from the Governor: Stay home. Stay safe.
Dear friends in Christ, I greet you in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the peace and power of the Holy Spirit.
The words of Paul from Philippians come to mind as I address you today.
“I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel.” We have a shared ministry together of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. It is a ministry of worship and prayer, a ministry of teaching and preaching, a ministry of compassion and care, a ministry of healing and feeding, a ministry of justice and reconciliation, a ministry of creating communities of love and forgiveness. It is a ministry we are needing to find new and creative ways to engage in as we live in a world shadowed by the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. I have been filled with deep joy at your creativity in being in ministry in new ways. I am needing to ask even more of you now.
