The time has come to take the next step. We will launch in-person worship on Sundays at 11 am at Holbrook UMC beginning August 30. It has been a challenge to be disconnected physically during this time and it will do our souls well to see one another face-to-face. We will continue to meet online on Zoom at 9 am every Sunday for those who prefer that option. There is no judgement or shame in either choice. My letter next week will give more details about our procedures for gathering in-person as we work it out. We will wear masks and maintain social distancing. Our worship service will be adapted to meet safety protocol. I appreciate everyone’s patience and encouragement during this difficult time of COVID19. I love seeing your faces on my computer screen each Sunday and will continue to cherish that time. But I will also be happy to see those face-to-face who chose to worship in-person. The threat of COVID19 is real and continuing, so we need to remain diligent in caring for ourselves and one another.
SERMON SERIES AND DAILY SCRIPTURES
My current sermon series is on the psalms. Psalms use poetic techniques to express our true heart. This past Sunday we focused on psalms of praise, which have the power to recalibrate our heart. The corresponding daily scriptures are: Psalm 8, 19, 95, 103, 11, 136 and 150. Read these psalms of praise and allow your soul to be renewed. This coming Sunday we will look closer at the psalms of wisdom. Click here for our daily readings.
