Check-in Challenge, Plus a Verse for Today

Let’s start with a check-in challenge. Make it a point to check in with someone each day – including today – that you haven’t heard from lately just to make sure they are doing OK, see if they need help or whatever. Many of us have been doing this already, so thank you. We have a special opportunity right now to practice Christ’s command to love one another. With disrupted schedules and lengthy hours in our own homes, we can easily fall into an out-of-sight, out-of-mind pattern. We can overcome it by getting in touch – by checking in – with someone that we can’t see.
Also, these words that God gave to ancient Israel make an encouraging promise for his people today. We can see them as a reminder that trials, even severe trials, are to be expected. At the same time we are encouraged to trust in the Lord who will see us through them.
(Isaiah 43:2) When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

Hi friends!
Saturday is here and that means tomorrow is Sunday (No kidding, right?) But it is a good time for a reminder that we are going fully online for the time being. Join us, please, online at 10 am tomorrow if you don’t have a responsibility to help make things happen – whether for the service portion, office things or Project Love when service is over.
And thanks again for stories I’ve heard of people reaching out to one another. Keep doing that. In fact, since restrictions keep getting stricter, please reach out to someone – especially someone from church in one of those high risk groups. If they have a need, then they of all people should have that need met by one of us. If you have a request or urgent need please do not hesitate to make it known.
Finally, today I’m reminded of a well-known verse from the Old Testament. It’s odd how sort of trite or overused it seems at most times. Now, however, especially when we look at it together with the verse before it, they have both meaning in them that has rarely seemed so meaningful before. Notice the “pestilence” part, which is another word for a fatal epidemic or disease.
(2 Chronicles 7:13-14) 13 When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, 14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
