Community in Action: Turn "Me" into "We"
March 24, 2020, 4:31 PM

Have the days blurred into the next for you yet? I was checking out at the store today and the clerk asked me what day it was. Thankfully I knew.

    I am grateful that some of the stores are having “Senior Hours” now though when I was getting gas at Costco, where there was no line at the pump, the line before the store was open was around the building. Yet at Safeway and Sprouts there were only a few people at the store.

    Please be sure to contact the church if you are in need of groceries or need some extra help. Our Deacons are trying to keep in touch with folks, but if you know someone who needs to be contacted please let us know.

    We will have our first Session meeting on Zoom tonight, that should be interesting. We still our planning our worship services for every Sunday.  Bruce and Bailey have been keeping Youth Group/Bible Study going each day via ZOOM online meetings at 7 p.m.   We also have Miss Nancy and Miss Kim helping with some Facebook Live demonstrations of things to do during this Shelter In Place time, with a special spiritual lesson  (4:30 p.m. each day). 

     One of the amazing parts of this experience is the number of people who are volunteering or are providing essentials to those in need. 7-year-old Cavanaugh Bell used $600 of his own money, earned over three Christmases and two birthdays, to create 65 “COVID-19 Carepacks.” He also bought 31 meals from Italian restaurant Buca Di Beppo for senior citizens. These are the kind of things which just warms my heart.

    This has been a great opportunity for us to turn the me into we, when the world turns upside down.

    Know this that “ For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

    Peace to you and yours,

    Pastor Randy
