Who would have thought a year ago that we would still be talking about Covid and all of the ramifications that it has had and continues to have on our church and our world? Many of us thought that by now Covid would be a thing of the past and we would all be saying “remember when…?
This year like last year has been a challenging time as we have continued to do our best to move forward under difficult and uncertain circumstance. We strived to be adaptable, flexible, and resilient. Sometimes we have succeeded and sometimes we have failed but through it all our faith has remained strong.
Christmas reminds us that no matter how hard the world, Covid or anything else would seeks to press us down the incarnation of Jesus ushers light into “the darkness, and the darkness shall not overcome it” (John 1:5).
As people of faith, we remember that Jesus is incarnated in every act of love and kindness, we extend to one another. God can reach us beyond all the barriers the world can create and revive us by giving us strength in times of uncertainty.
I pray you may see that God is leading us into a new season of life and ministry together. I invite you to stay connected through your presence (online or in-person), service, prayers, witness, and giving. We need each other more than ever before.
May this Christmas despite any difficulties we may face be one filled with Joy!
