Community in Action October 5, 2020

It was a gorgeous day yesterday. We did our best trying to figure out if the status of the air quality would be in the red zone or the orange zone, but we missed it and therefore we missed having Outdoor Worship yesterday. We did have Drive-Up Communion using an FM frequency and that was terrific.

    Using the radio was a little strange because I couldn’t hear how loud I was coming over the FM frequency, but we had about ten cars there and it was great to share the Last Supper with everyone present.

    We continue to try new things to make worship more accessible to our surrounding communities. We even invited a couple of passerby folks to join us for Drive-Up Communion, though we didn’t have any takers, this time.

    I know it has been said already numerous times, but I am so grateful for the many hands and innovative ways we have been able to worship together, through social media, videos on the iPhone or recordings of the band we have continued to be faithful as a worshiping community.

    In a couple of weeks we will also have a class available on the prophets. This will be using zoom and if you notify me about your interest I can make sure you receive an invite. In addition we have planned for a Trunk or Treat event with a visit from the Kona Ice Truck and a socially distanced costume parade.

    We are beginning our Advent planning and a pageant is in the works as well as some kind of Music Sunday. I have not figured out how to do a Christmas Eve candle lighting service yet,  but with the creative staff we have you will be surprised I am sure.

    As we continue to celebrate with each other let’s continue to find ways we can care for each other. If you have a need please contact the Deacons, through the office. Also anyone of us on staff or on the Prayer Chain or with the Leadership, our Deacons and Session, would love to pray with you.

    And let us not forget the needs of our country, those who are victims of the fires, victims of violence, or even victims of Covid. Let us continue to keep the people we know and the people we have just heard about in our prayers.

    We can work hard to forecast the weather or the temperature of our communities, but there will always be a change of wind or a sudden rain or an unexpected weather pattern to throw things awry. But we do know that God is with us. As John says in Revelation 21: “Look!  God’s dwelling is here with humankind. He will dwell with them, and they will be his peoples. God himself with be them as their God.”

    If God is with us, who, or what, can overpower us? Nothing. Know that God is with you and He will never leave you.
