When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.Proverbs 21:15
I remember those hot summers in the late 1960â€™s and early 1970â€™s. They were marked by an unease due to the social unrest around me. I used to be a real news junkie and would watch the process of protest unfold each night. Between the ages of 6 and 9 it scared me, and it also marked my psyche and life. Those hot summers of protest did engender change. Voices that needed to be heard were heard. Now they are back. They are needed to make a difference now. The promise of past decades slowed to a crawl and needs to be bought closer to completion. Perhaps it is our general comfort with the way things are. We get used to the status quo. No matter how much we say we like excitement, and things to be different, we donâ€™t. This is why scripture is important. This is why we must study what God has said on the subject, look to Godâ€™s design, and then set to work to close the gap between Godâ€™s way and what is. Jesus tells us: â€œSo whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.â€ We must live that. We need to ensure action for justice and dignity.
Summer and we have plans to re-open for public worship in our parish on Sunday, July 19th at 10am. Take a look at the required guidelines. We can do this by working together.
We had a busy June and July/August look to be just as busy. We are looking forward to Virtual Kurs and to re-opening for public worship. We look forward with hope and continue to be the faithful church at home and together.
Read about all it in ourÂ July/August 2020 Newsletter.
