PCL at a Glance for September 15, 2020

Inspirational Thought: It was wonderful seeing everyone on Sunday. The outdoor worship service was a winner and a keeper for now – during inclement weather, we will move into the sanctuary. I was happy that everyone followed the safety guidelines. We even had a guest who saw that we were holding an outdoor worship service in the Tribune and she wanted to come and see. With all that is going on in our world, nation, and the community it is good for us to gather together, even if it is to bow or wave. Seeing each other brings a lift to everyone’s spirit as we journey through this time of uncertainty together. Our legacy from the cloud of witnesses is that our faith is one of resolve and resilience. When faced with challenges, the saints didn’t fold like a deck of cards but keep on being faithful to their calling. I am sure that they would have sung the beloved hymn, “Our Hope Is Built on Nothing Less.” May we, like the sojourners of antiquity, lift up our heads and place our trust in a God who calms the troubled waters. Whether we come to the church using virtual means or in-person worship, may we come and praise God for his many blessings. In so doing, we acknowledge that it is with God that lemons are turned into lemonade.

Until we meet again, may God’s love be with you,

Pastor Dan

Prayer of the Week:  
Lead us, O Lord our God, Almighty.
Lead us in righteousness and truth.
Lead us with your light and cloud.
Lead us through the wilderness and in the dark night of our souls.
Lead us to the place where the only thing that we can do is to
follow; through Jesus Christ. Amen.

We’re all still dealing with the uncertainty of what is going to happen with our health, economics, and leadership. Much has already changed and change will continue. Fear and anxiety are appropriate, and holding back these feelings is harmful. One of the most powerful ingredients for stress reduction is calm, caring emotional support.

Please join us via Zoom at noon on September 14, when we resume our weekly, no-cost support group, facilitated by Eva Silver, LCSW, Cert. Psya.

Once you register you will receive the Zoom call in information.

Talking really does help.
