I could never have imagined a year ago when I accepted the position of President of our church that it would turn into such a challenging year for all of us. On March 14th 2020, the doors to our Church closed and in the blink of an eye, the whole world changed. I, like many, sat in my house during the cold winter months in tears mourning the loss of life, as I had known it. As difficult as it was to pull myself out of my own depression if you will, I knew I had a church to run and people would need their church, religious beliefs and God, whoever that may be to you, now more than ever. Our on-line services, although challenging at times, have been well received. In fact, our viewership has increased and we are now receiving requests from all over the United States from people interested in joining our church.
The winter passed and spring emerged with a new sense of life, a breath of new energy. We found that loosing everything allowed us to embrace the simple eloquence of life and living, of family and friends, of hope and love. Summer is here and slowly we are gaining our familiar lifestyles and comforts but with due caution. Our Church has never been about a building. Our Church is about faith and family, trust and knowing that we are always together in love and spirit in this moment constantly and forever. I thank each and every one of you for your kind patience and support as we move into the season of fall.
And with the simple beauty of seeing lilies in full bloom on a cold snowy day; we find comfort in knowing against the most difficult of conditions, life does go on.
Your Honored President
