A message from Rev. Dave
I ask for your prayers for peace of mind and peace of heart in the face of this upcoming election. There are fears of violence out there based on the results of the election. And that kind of fear is not what we are based on. Pray for the recognition of the right of all to vote, unencumbered and without fear, and that we all have the compassion to hear those who disagree with our own opinion and views.
You should have received a letter by now announcing our regathering on Sunday, October 25. I’ll probably remind you of this a lot between now and then, but masks must be worn, without exception. We will be in separate pews, and maintaining appropriate distance from each other. As much as I look forward to seeing you, I also remind you, if you do not feel safe and comfortable, stay home, and we will pray for you that day. Join us in Spirit! I want everyone to stay safe, and I look forward to being with you to celebrate God’s gifts in the world again!
Yours in Christ.
