And Now For Something Completely Different

December 9, 2020

Leadership Notes

{And Now for Something Completely Different}

Okay, here's the deal. True confession time. Over the past 6-8 months I've read a fair share of articles, comments, and commentaries on how pastors are struggling with Covid-19 challenges. Apparently, some churches are divided and/or dealing with palpable differences on moving forward during this pandemic. That has not been my experience.

Like any non-monolithic organization {unlike The Borg}, we hold a variety of thoughts and ideas about this pandemic. I believe strongly in being careful and cautious. My expectation is that people will make responsible choices for what is in their best interest and in the best interest of their families. And my experience is that people here are behaving accordingly. I would neither expect nor compel anyone to adhere to what I believe is in my best interest during this pandemic. For example, some worship in person, some worship online. We have had new worshipers in both venues in the past nine months. That's always a good thing.

I could not be happier with how Covenant Church people are loving and respecting each other and our community in 2020. Keep calm and carry on into 2021!

I love the people of Covenant Church. Sunday, after worship, I checked my text messages and a sweet, kind person sent me the name of the artist who sings my favorite version of "O Holy Night." It's by Tommee Profitt featuring Tauren Wells and SVRCINA. Watch it on YouTube. You won't be disappointed.
