In this emergency
During the weeks of the COVID-19 restrictions, Sunday worship is conducted in a Zoom meeting. Members and friends on our mailing list receive Zoom invitations. If you would like to attend the service online, send your email address to email@example.com and you will be added to the invitation list.
Confirmation and faith formation meetings are held on Zoom.
As we pass through days of isolation, members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to pray and meditate on scripture and to explore some of the spiritual treasures of our faith.
Keep in mind those who live alone. Telephone calls and emails between members and friends of the church keep connections strong and support those in need.
When routines change, patience and forbearance help us get along. If you are together for long periods of time in the house, take advantage of the time. Enjoy one another.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, members of Peace might be able to help. Pastor Johnson’s cell is 978/460-1118.
The opening and ending lines of the gospel for tomorrow speak of a community that is formed in relation to the ancient laws and instructions of the Hebrew scriptures and to the teachings and spirit of Jesus:
Jesus said to the disciples, If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone… for where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them. Matt 18:15 and 20.
The faith we share is formed and shown in assemblies and gatherings. In tomorrow’s gospel we’ll hear a little bit about what today we might call conflict management. How do get along together after we’ve gotten to know one another? How do we-self-sufficient suburbanites-enter into real community. How do grow from being spectators and advisors in the church to members of a family of faith?
