"On Christ the solid rock I stand // All other ground is sinking sand // All other ground is sinking sand." Perhaps only if you were alive during WWII can you think of a time when the entire world and our collective way of life was brought to its knees. The fragility and creatureliness of our existence has come into piercingly sharp focus, and we are right to feel weak and helpless. We are right to be dumfounded. We are right to wonder what, if anything, can be counted on in the days, weeks, and months ahead. But we would be wrong to forget that, while our world has never looked more like sinking sand, Christ the solid rock remains as immovable as ever. We would be wrong to forget that, while our world is changing by the minute, "there is no variation or shadow due to change" (James 1:17) when it comes to our God. Though we may not know what lies ahead, we can and should trust in the Lord. He is sovereign and good. If you want to know more about the hope we have in Christ, click HERE.
Let us as your leaders know how we can pray for and support you during this difficult season within the life of our church and community. We will be connecting with you through emails, texts, and social media, and you can connect with us through those means as well. We are here for you! Also, stay connected to one another. Pray for one another. Encourage one another. Serve one another. One of the primary ways in which we can love each other well while we endure this trial together is simply by staying in touch with one another. If you live "off the grid," so to speak, you may be smarter than the rest of us, but you may also have a harder time with the digital means by which we all need to be communicating now. As always, don't hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do to help you stay connected, especially if that means helping you find a place where you can engage in worship via our LIVESTREAM.
There are a number of ways that we can love one another as we pursue greater cleanliness and health...
- Let's wash our hands thoroughly and frequently.
- Let's practice social distancing, limiting our interactions to groups of less than 10.
- Let's take care of our bodies, maintaining healthy diets and exercising.
- Let's get outside and take advantage of the fact that we live in Mississippi! Fly a kite, play a round of golf, or go on a hike at one of our beautiful state parks (e.g. Trace, Tombigbee, or Tishomingo).
Here are a few resources we are using to stay informed regarding COVID-19...
