The Huntington Congregational Church United Church of Christ’s Council met last night. All agreed to suspend all on-site worship and activities at the church building until further notice.
I hope and pray that it will be together in our sanctuary sooner rather than later.
I hope and pray that our staying home and social distancing will “flatten the curve” and alleviate the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
I hope that this time will not be one of isolation but one of self-reflection, self-discovery, and some just plain rest.
I hope that families (by blood and in faith) will grow closer together, even if they are miles apart.
I hope that people will really realize what is truly needed in our lives.
I hope that we will grow stronger in our faith and trust in God.
I hope what our prayers would be more frequent and heart-felt.
I hope and pray that those who are infected would fine healing and those who lose loved ones will find comfort.
I hope that we will come out on the other side of this pandemic as a kinder, gentler, more tolerant, more patient, and more loving nation and world.
May it be so.
We will continue to have an on-line service each Sunday and on Holy Week. Zoom meeting will be held to tend to church business.
We will be calling our folks who do not have internet or emails to just to check in.
As always, I will be praying for you all and all the world. I am a phone call, a text, or an email away.
May God continue to fill you with God’s presence of strength and peace.
In Christ’s love,
