SOME THOUGHTS FROM THE PASTOR
Alexandra and I were walking, just soaking up the warmth and sunshine of spring and reflecting on this past year of a pandemic and its restrictions. In some ways the pandemic was like a dripping tap. When the tap drips in our kitchen for a minute or two it might get on our nerves, but after a day of hearing that sound we accept it, or after a month or a year we still accept it, but deep within us we are uneasy about it. Yet we somehow adjust to the new reality of it.
How was the past year for you?
What did you do to adjust?
What good did you gain that you couldn’t or wouldn't have if there had been no pandemic?
For me as Pastor, a shepherd of my flock, I was a little more at peace and satisfied just knowing that all the 'sheep' were near rather than far. We have a group of seniors that normally go south during the winter months. This past year all of us were together. So, being together and seeing all the faces – even though virtually, was very good. But oh, how I am looking forward to the time when Jesus Christ will return and we will be all together and united with Him, our Good Shepherd and Saviour!
