Hi My Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

A world wide pandemic.  A plague.  A virus.  A disease.  Yikes!  Covid-19 has certainly turned our world upside down. Businesses closing, then reopening, then closing, partially opening, laying people off, rehiring them, laying them off again.  Crazy!  Now this social distancing is making people act strangely.  Some are saying, "stay away from me!" and others are like, 'who cares'.  Mask or no mask?  Scriptures say to 'bear with the failings of the weak' so even though I don't like wearing my mask I will in order to put other people at ease.  It is no big deal.  Maybe it will help, who knows.  

I do know that this pandemic is stressing people out and they are taking it out on each other.  I do know that there does not appear to be anyone who has all the answers, but we continue to do the best we can.  I think it is important to share the responsibilities and decision making as a group since we are all in this together and everyone brings different gifts to the table.  And the real question is, "How can we continue to do effective ministry?".   Church is all about the worship of God and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to a hurting world.  We are the ambassadors of Christ and we need to act like it everyday.  

God help us! We certainly can not do any of this without Him.  Come Holy Spirit and guide us and direct us.  Fill us with the revelation truth of Jesus Christ for it is in His name we pray.  Amen.

God loves you and so do I,

Pastor Bruce
