Pastor's Update 

LONG HAUL

Well, here it is October 20/2020, yet it seems as if the whole world has changed. It's now a common (we hope) sight to see people wearing masks. We've learned to Zoom and to find other ways to 'DO' church and meetings and any other work that is necessary. We've become used to a more informal style of being since being at home for such an extended period of time.

Yet have we found other ways to 'BE' church? There's a Bible School song that I remember that expresses this perfectly, "The church is not a building, the church is not the steeple, the church is not a resting place, the church is the people.' It ends by stating that 'all who follow Jesus, all around the world' - these are the church. Certainly this pandemic has not been a good thing, however, think about ways in which we were able to BE church outside the building. There was a drive through birthday gathering. There were numerous phone calls and texts and Zooms. We found ways to BE church in new and creative ways...not just for the insiders,, but to everyone for whom we wore our masks, or those who received our extra food offerings, or just those to whom we said a good morning (from a social distance of course). Kindness and love multiply exponentially. Keep being who you are. Remember whose you are.

You are loved.
