From the Rector
Dear Calvary Parish,
This past Tuesday, nine members of Calvary gathered virtually via Zoom for a Bible study of the first letter of Peter. It was so refreshing to see some of your faces and dig into scripture, if just for forty minutes of the day.
This Sunday, we’re going to be intentional about making space to connect virtually one to another. See below for instructions on how to connect via our new
“Zoom Coffee Hour.
” We’ll spend a few minutes just greeting one another in a big group, and if a critical mass signs on, we’ll breakout into smaller groups to share in some fellowship with one another. All you have to do is log-in to Zoom and show up.
I want to thank all of you who have been part of our
Live Worship Online
. We have made a point to share the worship with the greater Cincinnati community via a focused boosted post and last week had over 2,000 views of our worship and 350 through-plays.
That is a significant attendance boost! We are sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ beyond the walls and into the living rooms of our neighbors.
In this time when we can feel so separated from others throughout the week, we’re reminded of what Corporate Worship is intended to do: “
In corporate worship, we unite ourselves with others to acknowledge the holiness of God.” Book of Common Prayer, p. 857.
That means God is made known to us when we worship together.
Let’s keep devoting ourselves to hearing God’s Word and offering prayer on Sunday mornings — and then take some time to see the faces of the people with whom we are worshipping via Zoom Coffee Hour, if possible.
I am grateful to each of you for your faithfulness in these trying times.
