June 17

Dear Friends,

Here are some quick notes on a beautiful day:

This coming Sunday, June 20, we will begin again to have refreshments after each service – outdoors, with simple goodies. Come to church and then greet friends and new people safely outdoors.

This Sunday, Fr. Ed Sterling will be our preacher. This weekend will mark his 63rd year of priesthood and the 64th anniversary of his ordination to the Diaconate. And it is Father’s Day. I will preside for Holy Communion and look forward to our gathering together again. The 10 am service will also be livestreamed.

Some further thoughts about confidence, especially as we consider how we may feel as pandemic restrictions are changing. We shall follow the best science and guidance of public health leaders. AND we shall remember that our security and health is in God's hands. Psalm 121 helps with this:
I lift up my eyes to the hills;
from where is my help to come?
My help comes from the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved
and he who watches over you will not fall asleep.
Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel
shall neither slumber nor sleep;
The Lord himself watches over you;
the Lord is your shade at your right hand,
So that the sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
it is he who shall keep you safe.
The Lord shall watch over your going out and your coming in,
from this time forth for evermore.

Yours in Christ,

Martin+
