Staying Connected – Thursday in Easter Week

Psalms 146, 147; Exodus 13:3-10; 1 Corinthians 15:41-50; Matthew 28:16-20

How do you find life going these days of social distancing and staying in place?  Have you ever thought there is an opportunity in the crisis we find ourselves?  Consider the following in a recent  New York Times article by Father Steve Paulikas:

“Yet the void created by this crisis may be an unexpected gift. This emptiness presents to us a mystical and uncluttered view of life as we have been living it until a few weeks ago. Life will never be the same. Each day, it becomes more apparent that this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to consider a fundamental question about the spirit and morality of our way of living: Having emptied ourselves, what do we really want to fill our world with once it is time to rebuild?”

In these challenging times, may we find the opportunity to grow stronger in our walk with the Lord –  loving God and our neighbor.

Lord, in the midst of all things we are experiencing this day, may our hearts be turned to glorifying you.  Thanks be to you, O God.

May you experience Christ’s love throughout your day,

Pastor Tom
