… Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  John 14:6

            

             This Lenten season has been unlike any other we’ve known. We’re faced with new challenges as we continue to be the church amidst the uncertainties surrounding us each day. As relational people, perhaps the most difficult is the need to distance ourselves in an attempt to keep others safe. Saint Paul reminds us in Philippians 2.4, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Each of us can certainly look out for one another, as we pray the Holy Spirit will guide us in new ways of doing things, as we’ve already seen happening.

             We’re very blessed to have many forms of communication available to keeping us connected, even when we are physically apart. Pastor Sarah continues to offer mid-week Lenten and regular Worship services online. As of this writing, I am preparing to utilize video conferencing for our upcoming Christian Education Committee Meeting. Also sending handouts for the teacher’s to mail to their students, letting them know they are thought about, and keeping our Sunday School program in motion.

There are many ways we can look out for our neighbors, reaching out with a phone call, or sending a note to say we’re thinking about you. This is especially important for those living alone, or in personal care homes where visitors are limited. I’m sure they would love to receive a card, poem or scripture verse, just to know others care.

Most especially, we all can pray .. pray for ways we can share God’s love for those around us, and especially sharing the living hope we have through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Wishing you and your families a healthy and blessed Easter+ season.

 

Yours in Christ,

Karen Legenzoff, Director
