Guest Minister Carolyn Miller
Thank you again for inviting me to share worship with you.
In all my 42 years of ordained life, this year is one for the record books. This pandemic has taken something from all of us, from minor inconveniences to the loss of loved ones. COVID 19 has also made many of us distrust what the government promises, and made us fearful of getting this deadly virus.
It’s been said that life will never be the same, and in many ways that’s not a bad thing! As you might recall, Colin and I share our home with a very active, attention seeking feline, INKY, who thinks he’s a dog! Despite the fact that he can’t yet tell time, he keeps me company watering our extensive vegetable garden, well before the sun is even up. Our pet companions can be a real joy and a delight.
Despite these present times, the good and the not so good, God journeys with us even during those times we are unaware of God’s loving presence.
Please support the life and work of St. Bart’s
One of the consequences of not being able to worship together at our church building is that we do not have a weekly offering to keep donations flowing into St. Bart’s. We have a dozen families on PAR (pre-authorized remittances), but this is not enough to allow us to continue to meet all of our regular monthly operating expenses. We are currently drawing on a liquidity reserve to meet expenses, however, the longer the present situation lasts, the greater the need becomes to receive donations through other channels. Some options for your consideration. Click on Givings
