Another year is about to be in the books, and I think we can safely say this has been a year like no other. 2020 has been a year of hardship and trials for many, and it has been a year that has reminded us more than ever of the importance of connection: Connection to our friends and families, connection to our neighbors, and connection to each other. We need one another.
As a church family, we have found new avenues for connecting with each other and new ways to worship together amid a global crisis. Even when we can’t be together, we can still hold fast to the thing that unites us: our hope in Christ. Hope is what anchors our souls while giving us the strength we need to keep pushing forward. Hope is what binds us together, and hope is what we can offer the world and each other during these troubled times.
I encourage you to continue seeking connections and avenues to share the hope we have as we prepare to begin 2021. Consider joining Pastor David and me for our Pastor’s Book Club via Zoom starting next week, or becoming a Sunday School class leader. Reach out to someone who might need some encouragement. Hope spreads like wildfire - but it needs YOU to be the spark.
