So Governor Scott says that church buildings may be open for worship at 25%... I do believe that when we open, ALL will have a place to worship with the rest of us!
To open, we must have the okay from our Bishop of the NEUMC Conference and we must have a plan. So, we (Pastor and trustees') are working on this plan. Every person will need to wear a mask and refrain from handshakes and hugs...
When the day comes... I WILL LET YOU KNOW A WEEK IN ADVANCE ~ SO EVERYONE CAN BE THERE!
Until then, the lessons for May 31st are:
John 7:37-39; Acts 2:1-21; Psalm 104:24-34, 35b; I Corinthians 12:3b-13
This Sunday is Pentecost... as Jesus' disciples huddled together in fear, the Holy Spirit entered their dwelling in rushing wind and tongues of fire. In that moment, the Church was born! Without Pentecost, the gospel would not have moved beyond the group of disciples huddled in the upper room. The power of God to create and renew life is the power of the Holy Spirit. May we have that "spirit" within us!
Be among us in power... We within us in truth... Surround us in love... In Jesus' name... Amen!
