Pastor’s Message – March 16, 2021

A Year Later

One year ago this week, a former parishioner sent me a meme from the movie, Forrest Gump, of Tom Hanks’ character seated at a bus stop. A bubble over his head had him saying, “And just like that… my pastor was a televangelist!” I cringed and laughed and thought (hoped?) this newfound art of preaching to a camera would be temporary.

A year later, I look at the camera very differently. It is a part of our regular worship service, and I am thankful for what God is doing with our growing digital ministry. I’m equally thankful, though, that I’m not preaching solely to a camera now. It is wonderful that those who wish to do so can gather safely in person, and thank you for your patience and cooperation.

As we continue through the Lenten season and look expectantly to the Easter season, we have some wonderful worship opportunities both in person and virtual. Be sure to add these observances to your calendar!

all good things to each of you,
Dr. Darian
