Pastoral Letter: April 23, 2020

Pastoral Letter: April 23, 2020

Dear friends, This week’s pastoral letter is short. And dedicated to one topic: Gathering. Gathering together, being in each other’s company, fellowship, congregating, communing — these all describe an essential Christian practice. And a problem we need to solve collectively. Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them” (Matthew 18:20). How do we do this during a pandemic? Answer: online. Every Sunday morning from 9:30…Keep Reading
