Exactly one year ago our communal “Zoom-life” began. On Palm Sunday, 2020 we gathered for the first time electronically and remotely with Bishop Jennifer to worship in a manner both strange and unexpected. Few of us imagined that we would be worshipping in that same strange way one year later. And yet here we are.
And yet springtime has begun, the grass greens, and trees soon will flower. Slowly but surely we are emerging from the dark depths of this past year. Hope returns as surely as morning light overtakes the darkness. Just as the Passion is followed by Easter’s Resurrection, so too will new energy and life arise in us and in our Parish community.
Therefore, please know that plans for our regathering as a Parish community will soon appear. As more and more of us are vaccinated, opportunities for gathering and worshipping together again soon will become available and realizable. Keep the faith. Keep praying. Keep loving, caring, and serving.
Look! I’m creating
a new heaven and a new earth:
past events won’t be remembered;
they won’t come to mind.
Be glad and rejoice forever
in what I’m creating,
because I’m creating Jerusalem as a joy
and her people as a source of gladness.
