Thankful for the Weird Experiences

It’s been such a good and "weird" transition with our community gathering again in-person: good in that we’re together; weird in that we’re together (good-weird, I promise)! I wouldn’t trade either of these "weirds" for the world. I wouldn’t trade seeing a youth and their families, whether in Sunday school or worship. I wouldn’t trade seeing and hearing our wonderful choir lead us in worship, along with everyone in the congregation filling our building with praise. I wouldn’t trade the many smiles and friendly exchanges we’ve all partaken of in this past month. I wouldn’t even trade the collective cricket sounds from our prepackaged communion kits made during our first communion back together, which was one of the most hilarious experiences I’ve ever had in a worship setting.

There’s obviously so many more things I could go on about, but all of this to say - thanks be to God our Beloved Community is back together again! I am beyond excited to see what these upcoming months have in store.

I pray that the peace of Christ would be with you and yours!
