I, along with you, am feeling the fatigue of this year. Recently, I noticed how I will slowly and subconsciously move closer to people when I am 6 feet away. That is something I never thought I would have to pay attention too before this year. Constantly having to think about our behavior outside the home is hard.
This Sunday we are going into our final week of our sermon series, “Good Grief,” as we seek to unpack the many unwanted changes, stress, and suffering this year has brought. We are going to explore the hope and love found in Jesus, even during times where we feel that we will never get back what we have lost.
As we process and give name to the exhaustion we are all feeling, it is important now more than ever that we continue to love our neighbor by keeping our distance and wearing our masks. What we do now during our hardship will define who we are and what we will be in the future. We are building a new foundation for our lives, community, and church.
I want to invite you all to mark your calendars for a Town Hall gathering for The Source on Thursday, December 17th at 6:30p.m. A Zoom link will be sent out and posted online as we move closer to our gathering date. My hope is that this will be a place where we can share our thoughts and feelings about what it means to be the church now and what we hope to be in the future.
If I have learned anything during my time as a Pastor, it is that the Spirit of God speaks through everyone in the community of Christ. Your voice and understanding matters as we discern the will of God together. Until then, there are many different opportunities to get involved in our church community. Below are just a few of the opportunities we as a church feel are important in the coming weeks.
