“So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” – Jesus, Matthew 6:34
These are good words from Jesus for every day, but today they feel especially pertinent. As the situation around the world changes day by day, things we were worrying about yesterday no longer matter because they have been replaced with new things we can worry about today. Or… we could decide not to worry about tomorrow or today… and just do the best we can with what we’ve been given.
Wherever you are, whatever your particular challenge TODAY… seek to meet it with the knowledge that you do not do so alone, God has promised that we have the Holy Spirit with us moment by moment and we will never be abandoned to our own devices, plans, or strength. Take some time today to sit and be still, or go for a walk outside and pay attention to the life and beauty that is all around. You don’t know what tomorrow holds, so enjoy THIS day and the moments in it as best you can.
A few days ago the consistory met and spent time discussing how we would function at Peace through the end of this month. It was our plan to keep the office open in the mornings so people could stop in for mail or whatever. Unfortunately, with things changing rapidly around us, we have made the decision today that we will close the office until further notice, and all staff will be working from home. Fortunately we have some amazing tools and even more amazing staff that help us stay connected and carry on caring for you and our community even though we can’t be all together.
We will still gather for worship at 10:00am this Sunday at www.peace-eagan.org/worship … OR, if you want a wonderfully different experience, join Peace Deaf Church on Facebook Live at 9:30am at https://www.facebook.com/PeaceDeafChurch/
If you have a prayer concern, email email@example.com, and if you know of others who don’t have access to email please consider giving them a call and asking them if they would like you to call them each day and read them these updates and any prayer requests that come through so they can stay connected as well!
Also, my cell phone is 612-417-3993. If you need someone to talk to, pray with, or if you have questions, feel free to call!
