Reflections from Pastor Mary Anne:
As I write this the noon chimes are playing the chords of a beloved hymn:
We are living in unprecedented times. I know that I feel like I am in the middle of a movie or a vivid dream and keep waiting for the next scene to play out. It is helpful at times like these to recognize that we are not alone. Even in the midst of closures and cancellations we are united in our humanity, in our baptisms, in our hope and fears. Pray for each other, our country and Christ’s Church, that we live through this and emerge changed, but stronger than ever.
1God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
3though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
4There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.
5God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns.
6The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
8Come, behold the works of the LORD; see what desolations he has brought on the earth.
9He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.
10"Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth."
11The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
In Peace, Pastor Mary Anne
