To add a contemporary twist to The Book of Ecclesiastes …
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.
- A time to be born and a time to die;
- A time to weep and a time to laugh;
- A TIME TO TAKE A RISK AND A TIME TO BE CAUTIOUS.
I fully realize that some of you will think I am over-reacting… and I know there are those who have wondered why we didn’t cancel worship two days ago. This is not a decision I wanted to make. But there are many vulnerable people in our congregation. There are those (myself included) who are still enduring the slow-fading symptoms of bronchitis. I do not want to ask anyone to come to worship who will be nervous about being there. But I am convinced it is the necessary call –
We will not gather for worship tomorrow morning.
Stay home. Stay safe. Let us put into practice the ancient wisdom: “be still and know that I am God…”
May the Lord bless you and keep you all healthy and safe. We pray for those who are affected, infected, suffering, and dying. We pray the people in authority tell us the truth and make wise decisions. We pray for those are working in the health care field.
