Once again we find ourselves in this strange reality, flexibility is a great asset in these days and we are all in it together. It's a time when the power of our love for each other can be what makes all the difference. Reaching out to each other “digitally” :) and by phone is crucial, be mindful of those of us who live alone, to whom a phone call could make all the difference.
I deeply appreciate our teams here in LWCC, from the Over-site Team, Trustees, Department Leaders, Pastoral Care Team, Staff and all of the Connect Leaders, leaders within ministry departments and all who serve so well. Also to all the experienced Ministries amongst us who minister to so many. It is a great honor and privilege to walk with you and serve the Lord with you all.
I hear the words of Paul the apostle that he wrote in Philippians 4:12-14
“ I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
14 Nevertheless you have done well that you shared in my distress.”
Here, Paul expresses the reality of experiencing Christ strengthening him, in all that he enjoyed and endured.
He also expresses the appreciation for those who shared with him, and helped him when in distress.
It is our individual experience of Christ in us in this time, and the fact we have each other that gives such a great advantage over the world.
Keep your eyes on Jesus
Love to you all and God Bless
