Welcome to Online Worship!

Peace to You, Sisters and Brothers in Christ!!

Keep Calm and Carry On

These are words to live by in this time and many others in which we feel tested personally and collectively.  They are not easy words to accomplish.  Keeping calm is doable if most things in your world are in place, organized and not bothering you. It can sometimes take just one small little problem or concern that drives you to wonder how the day could be so long.

The past few months have clearly demonstrated at several levels that individual decisions drive our collective reality.  People of all generations, persuasions, attitudes, backgrounds, and leadership positions have been choosing their approach to managing the COVID crisis, personal health, work related choices and their reaction to immigration issues and racial unrest.  Those choices have limited the choices of others in significant ways; from how to get groceries and a haircut and how to get your work done and educate children.  We live with the results of not only our own decisioins but other’s choices.

My mantra these days is Keep Calm and Act Faithfully (and Educate when Possible).

To act, think and choose as Jesus would have us do…. With a new testament concern for others is how I choose to respond, decide and act.  Some of my options will not improve my individual situation.  My choice is that the decisions that favor the overall good of others, my community, my country are the ones I need to make.

It is clear that each of us alone will not make a huge difference but like voting we can pray that others will choose wisely and collectively good choices that are best for everyone and will help us move forward to a better world than we have today.

In Hope, Liz
