Strange times again!
As we gathered in church this past Sunday, there were no prayer books or hymnals, we were masked, the windows were open, the fans on, and people spaced 6 feet apart (we are still working on that spacing).
So I am thinking, here we go again.
In Forward Day by Day, August 12th, Adam Trambley’s thoughts were mine too.
“My own head is filled with assumptions. The most harm I’ve done in my life comes when I don’t check my assumptions before acting on them. Jesus is the Truth. We honor him whenever we admit that our “truths” might be wrong.”
Who can I blame? How can I stay safe? I know the answers.
We were not brought here to blame and we know how to be safe and vigilant. We just need to love people no matter what their choices are.
Then the reading this Sunday summed it up beautifully.
“You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger; for your anger does not produce God’s righteousness. Therefore rid yourselves of all sordidness and rank growth of wickedness, and welcome with meekness the implanted word that has the power to save your souls.”
Respectfully submitted and masked,
