Tomorrow in our worship service, we will honor the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We will speak of his wisdom and insight. And we will speak of his call to the beloved community.
This has been a very hard week for all of us at MCC Tampa. Last week in service we announced the death of our long-time member and friend of the church, Chris Goldsmith. Then this week we lost Tiffani Middlesexx. Both Chris and Tiffani loved this community, both served as Board Members, and both were loved by this community.
We need our beloved community right now. You are invited to church. I hope to see you in the space where we create beloved community with one another. This is where you belong.
Church is a sacred place. Come to this sacred place tomorrow. Come to this place where people love you. Come to this place where you are seen, loved, and accepted, just as you are.
If you can’t join us in person, I hope that you’ll join us on YouTube or Facebook. Whatever grief or burdens you might be carrying, please don’t carry them alone. Join us and we will journey together.
You are loved,
