Welcome in the name of Jesus Christ

May 13, 2020

Greetings to you all,

            I hope your Mother’s Day turned out to be a bright spot in the midst of these trying times.  In our spirits, we’ve come to a place of frustration, aid grown weary under our current restrictions.  In a conversation the other day, I discovered that many people are feeling down or depressed from time to time.  I wondered if the catalyst for this is because of the obvious social isolation combined with the media narrative that is projecting us as being responsible for the spread of the virus.  We do what we can, but ultimately, it is a contagious illness.

            I know it is easy to get caught up in the doom and gloom that is beyond our control, but somehow we need to find joy and hope through our current situation.  Self-care is important to our physical, mental, and spiritual health.  Try to do something every day that is “life giving” because we have enough weighing on us that is “life taking”. 

            God has a plan, and Jesus did say that He has come that “we may have life, and have it more abundantly”, meaning; life in its abounding fullness of joy and strength for mind, body and soul. 


In Christ,
