"God Is Always Faithful"
Message from Pastor Kerns
Stir up your power, and come! The psalmist’s plea in Psalm 80:2 has become familiar to us in the Advent prayers. Isaiah wants God to rip the heavens open. Both cry out for an apparently distant, angry God to show up, to save, to restore. When we hear Jesus describing the coming of the Son of Man with stars falling from heaven, it can sound dire and horrible, not like anything we would ever hope for. But when we really look at the suffering of people God loves, we can share the hope that God would tear open the heavens and come.
The return to the Nave for worship has gone well and everyone has abided by the protocols that are set in place including and very importantly wearing a mask. We have distanced in the Nave and have worshipped in a safe way that includes no singing at this time and we have fasted from communion as well for the safety of everyone present. Recently the state of Pennsylvania has asked people to wear your masks and keep vigilant when you are out and about for your safety. We have heard from our Synodical Bishop about the need to make sure we follow the guidelines for our safety. One denomination has asked their churches to close until after January first. We are not there yet, according to our Bishop, but that will depend on the progress of the virus.
