Things used to slow down a great deal in summer. Less so today, I think. While the church year and calendar begin on (or about) December first, we really operate on an academic year. We are grateful to all those who taught our children over the past season. We are also grateful for all who gave of their time and talents in the past months.
We will still worship at 8:30 and 10:00 am on Sundays. We will get together after the Sunday services for fellowship and time to catch up on how the summer is going. The Holy Eucharist will continue – our regular Sunday services, with acolytes, readers, chalice bearers, ushers, and those who provide hospitality.
We will begin to plan for Fall. And with God’s help and approval we will all move a bit slower through the Summer months.
People will still go into the hospital. We will be there with them. Please let us know when someone you know goes in so we can be there.
God’s presence and God’s blessings will still be here – even in Summer.
On this Pentecost Sunday we are given the Holy Spirit – reminded that the Spirit’s presence with us is an eternal gift.
So, even as we move a bit slower, enjoy some leisure time, and relax, we can know that God is with us in this time, and in all times and moments.
