CONCERNING ALL OTHER EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES
otherwise noted below, or otherwise communicated, ALL events and activities
or cancelled, until further notice.
CONCERNING LIFE GROUPS
As Fr. Chris has mentioned, find creative ways to stay connected, through Skype, Zoom, Face Time, emails, phone calls, etc.
CONCERNING PASTORAL CARE
As we are
asking our Lord what a "Gospel response" to this pandemic might look
like (1) for each of us individually,
(2) for our church corporately, (3)
within our parish family, and (4) within the community we serve.
We can't do everything, but there will be some thing(s) we can begin do.
FIRST, remember that we are all in this
together: Because we are all brothers and sisters in Christ, your vestry will
be reaching out to every member of the congregation over the next few days, at
least via email, to check in on everyone and see how each of us is doing. The
vestry will continue to check in on everyone every couple of weeks. Please
share with us how you are doing - what are your prayer requests? Do you have
needs? If we can meet them within our community, we will. If we can't, we will
point you to resources. The vestry will continue to keep the clergy apprised of
how people are doing.
As Jesus said, "By this all people will know that you are my
disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:35.
SECOND, as needs are identified: If you would
be willing help coordinate and/or be part of a response team,
Fr. Chris HERE.
THIRD, if you have prayer requests, please click HERE.
AGAIN, none of this caught God by surprise, and it certainly did not knock him off his throne! We may live in a fallen world, but by the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are not subject to futility or fatalism. Indeed, we are more than conquerors! So, let me close by inviting us to meditate on these words, written by the Apostle Paul nearly 2,000 years ago, who himself endured incredible hardship and suffering for the sake of the Gospel:
"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory, beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal." -
II Corinthians 4:16-18
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Chris Culpepper+
