Today the ELCA remembers Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth as renewers of society. Both women were born into slavery, one in Maryland, the other in New York. Harriet Tubman escaped to freedom, and with fierce determination helped many other slaves to escape. Sojourner was born a slave and given the name Isabella. When slavery was abolished in New York in 1827 she changed her name and began a career as an itinerant Christian preacher. Imagine the good things that both women did, and the hardships they endured in their lives. So in our shady suburbs in which we worship the idols of wealth and leisure, and work like dogs to serve these two gods, give thanks for women like Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth who accepted suffering and hard lives on behalf others. They did good things in the world. May their heroic examples inspire us.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
