Pastor's Letter July/August
Wow, it is just difficult to describe the past sixteen weeks. The Covid-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc among us all, and now the pockets of racial and cultural unrest that we are experiencing seek to overwhelm us. The inflammatory, hate-filled rhetoric and actions of so many factions involved fill our airwaves and newsprint with images and events that seek to further tear us all apart. In all of this, there are things we know to be true: Racism exists. It is entrenched, still, in so many people and places. As long as racism exists, we also know this truth: Change is necessary. Mistreating anyone because of race, color, beliefs, or any other difference is certainly not the way of Christ. We, as the church, are called, and commanded to love, not hate, to build up, not tear down.
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil, cling to what is good.”
(Romans 12:9 NIV)
I would encourage us all to read Romans 12:9-21 and be open to seeking ways to live that out together with all.
I also know this truth: The church and Word of God will prevail and the gates of hell will not overcome it. Even the midst of pandemic, we are still the church. As we seek the best way to come back together for corporate worship, we are called to pray, called to seek out ways to work with each other to combat evil and injustice, in any form, and to promote the love of Christ through our words and deeds.
We need each other more than ever. This summer will progress like one we’ve not really experienced before, and I pray that you will find ways to refresh and renew. Spend time with family and friends to the best of your ability.
Be well, be strong in your faith, be prepared to stand up for what is right and good, wash your hands, and keep the faith!
Summer blessings to all, until we are with each other again,
