In this emergency
During the weeks of the coronavirus 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be added to the invitation list.
Confirmation and faith formation meetings are held on Zoom.
During these 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.
Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched [the leper] and said to him, “…be made clean.” Mark 1:42 Sunday we hear another passage about healing from Mark 1. This time the healing happens in what Mark calls cleansing. Lepers, being infectious, were outcasts from the village, quarantined or left to wander and beg. This episode opens a new window on healing for us. Following Jesus we choose to reach out to the outcasts of the world around us. As a congregation we need to keep pressing this point. Our proper work together, as disciples of Jesus, is with those who have fallen along the way, as our hard-charging society of wealth, power and privilege rumbles on. My sermon on Sunday will look at healing as a Christian “basic”. We’ll look at the commentary on the services of healing in our worship book and explore some of the many meanings of healing alive in the church.
