A Message to Connect - March 31, 2020

Good Morning Everyone,

We continue this journey together – while apart.

We are learning new things about what is important in life, what we miss the most and how to stay connected.

In today’s reading from Colossians 3: 12-17, the line that stands out is the first:

Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience.


While we, as followers of Jesus, often think of using these gifts to bless others,

today, I invite you to allow these gifts to be a blessing for your self. 

Be compassionate and kind to yourself.  Be gentle and patient with yourself.


Many of us may not be acting like ourselves – we might be more forgetful and more frustrated.

So be compassionate and kind to yourself.  Be gentle and patient with yourself.

God’s love enfolds all of our fears, frustration and forgetfulness; God loves us just as we are.


With all of our love and blessings,

Rev. Susan & Rev. David
