Because it Matters More Today

God has shown us what perfect love is in Jesus, and that love didn’t sweep in and solve problems, it didn’t tell us we didn’t have it so bad, or to make the most of the situation. That love came and walked alongside and prayed alongside and suffered alongside.

Is Hope the Same as Magical Thinking?

Being afraid of something does not mitigate hope. We are human and we cannot be anything else. Any number of things can bring us to fear, and in humility we know that. And yet, hope survives and thrives alongside fear.

What’s Next?

There is an inescapable sense of anxiety right now. What are we in…Day 33 of Social Distancing? Over 21 days of “Shelter in place.” And for some of us, there’s even something called anticipatory grief – the change we fear may be coming. The grief over “what’s next?”

Where is God in all this?

This enforced time at home, separated from work and from daily routines and pleasures, has led to some reflection on my part on the random suffering and death caused by the coronavirus. Where is God in all this?

We Are Not Alone

I hope you are participating in the many online opportunities provided by First Church! I certainly found comfort and reassurance when I watched First Church’s worship services this past Sunday.
