Pastoral Update September 17, 2021

 

Grace from Christ who loves us,

 

With the recent announcement of renewed health restrictions, we are likely all feeling a “soup pot” of emotions. Let’s remember, as God’s people, we are not alone in this. We have been blessed by faith, know how to care for one another, and have been given hope for the future. We may not be able to control what has happened, but we can take a breath and move forward.

 

Still, the stress, anger, and fear may feel overwhelming. Let’s be here for one another. Let’s be kind and seek understanding. We are better together and there are ways for us to connect and support each other even if we can’t gather or visit as we used to. If you need someone to talk to or pray with or even listen, you are always welcome to connect with us.

 

We will remain open to in-person worship. For Holy Spirit these new restrictions necessitate fewer people in worship. Therefore, at this time we are asking you to worship online from home if that is possible for you so as to reserve space for in-person worshippers who are not able to connect online. Please note that masks must be worn (and are available.)

  • Sunday School: videos are provided by our teachers immediately following worship on Sunday mornings.

We give thanks again for the gift of technology, for our amazing and supportive community and mostly to God who loves us unconditionally. 

 

Peace be with you all,
Pastor Trish
