Today we prayed this during Morning Prayer and my heart ached to be in our house of the Lord together on Quincy Street. I can only imagine how glad I will be when they say unto me… you can gather again with Restoration.
I miss you.
Just a few updates this week as we head into the weekend.
1. Thank you for your responses to our survey on Zoom v. YouTube Live for Sunday worship. The overwhelming feedback was in favor of YouTube Live. Our staff team agrees. It allows us to integrate music into our liturgy and broadcast from our sanctuary. It affords greater security and is an easier first step for our friends who might want to check it out. We will be back on Sunday at 10. Consider inviting a friend to try it!
We will also have opportunities to see each other on Zoom on Sundays.
1. We have created the Resto Coffee and Chat Zoom from 9:45-9:59 on Sundays. Bring your own coffee. Log in to Zoom. Rev. Beth Tipps will welcome you. You can say hi to your friends, see people, even grab a smaller Zoom room if you are trying to catch up a group of people.
2. Kids get to see each other in our awesome Kids’ Small Groups. You can access them here. From 8:45-9:15, all our kids who are nursery to 1st grade are together. Then, from 9:15-9:45, all of our kids who are 2nd to 5th grade are together. We can’t wait to see you there.
3. As the service ends, Rev. Nathan Dickerson will be waiting here on Zoom to help you get connected for intercessory prayer.
We can’t wait to see you on Sunday.
Psalm 122 ends with a repeated refrain of “Peace! Peace be with you!”
It has been my daily prayer for our congregation:
Give peace in our time, Oh Lord. And defend us by your mighty power.
Keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus. See you soon.
