I know we are living through crazy and surreal times right now. We, like churches all across the country (and world!), are taking extra precautions right now to protect our community against the Corona Virus. We are following guidelines issued by the United Church of Christ and limiting our human contact, which means engaging in alternative forms of passing of the peace, not having greeting lines and not inviting people to join hands where I would have before (usually the kids hold hands for their prayer at the children's sermon and we hold hands for the benediction). We are asking people to be mindful of their own germs and to not come to church if they are sick - I did notice our attendance was down last week, but I wonder if any of that had to do with the time change as well (zzz).
Anyway - one of the ways worship can still be accessible to my community during this outbreak is through this space! So here is my sermon from Sunday. We are back on the lectionary for Lent and I was preaching out of John.
Enjoy ... - Sarah
