Dear Friends,

Last June we were so busy. Conference was happening the first week, Family Promise was moving in, there was Vacation Bible School, and the Unity Picnic. All things to look forward to doing. This June the feel is quite different. It seems we have not had a real holiday since Christmas and all the aforementioned events have been cancelled. A person could get depressed if he/she allowed themselves.


While I am lamenting over the loss of holidays, there are reminders everywhere that life will go on. God does not follow the path of the media. This spring our flowers have never been more abundant. We are seeing plants, listed as annuals on the packaging, reemerge as volunteers, ready to bring a little joy, and hummingbirds to our humble estate.


My point is, just like Solomon told us in Ecclesiastes 3: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heavens.” We may be holding in place but the end to this pandemic will come and the prophecy will be fulfilled. Though weeping occurs in the night, joy will rule the morning. We are Easter people, resurrection people, our light shines through the darkness.



Pastor Mark
