I’ve attached again the reminder and update from our reopening team. I look forward to seeing those of you who come out on Sunday. Remember, no pressure. If you’re not feeling ready, no problem, connect with us on the livestream. Q&A time will be focusing on prayer since it’s the last Sunday of the month. If you have a prayer request, you can send it in ahead of time if you’d like to me at firstname.lastname@example.org

A thought for the day: May we be People of Hope
While we’ve been looking at the issue of ‘joy in the storm’ of late but the message of hope from our series leading up to Easter has still been on my mind. As our experience with Covid continues to drag on it becomes easy to despair and lose hope.
We must face these days of fear and testing, we really don’t have a choice. So, may we not passively accept them or capitulate to them. These can and should be days of renewed worship, rededicated service, care, friendship, work, and love. We must be alert to the stranger among us, and we must love one another and be kind to one another as God has been merciful to us.
To follow Jesus is to be a people of hope. And our hope is not in vain, because it’s invested in the creator God of the universe, who has given us life and hope through Jesus. He is worthy of our trust, and He can aid us in conquering our fears. Jesus said the night he was arrested: “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world”.
In His grip,
