No church? No worries!

Make sure you don’t take things for granted and go slack in working for the common good; share what you have with others. God takes particular pleasure in acts of worship- a different kind of “sacrifice”- that take place in kitchen and workplace and on the streets.

Hebrews 13:16 MSG

No worship today or on your Sabbath? No worries. God takes pleasure in our acts of worship for the common good, when we share with others, when we can bring joy to the world. And there are so many ways to do that! I’m loving the opportunities for innovation that are emerging in these unusual times. Let’s do this! I share these words from my husband, Bishop Robert C. Wright this morning.

What you can do rather than go to Church this morning!
1.Have worship at home with your family.
2.Take a walk and think about God’s goodness to you.
3. Make a list of folks who could use a kind and encouraging word and call or text them.
4. Call someone you struggle to love and just say, “I was just thinking about you.”
5. Start reading the bible.
6. Make an online donation to an organization that is doing important work.
7. Commit to pray for those in the health care space for the rest of this pandemic.
8. Turn off the TV, turn on the music that touches your soul.
9. Commit to using all of your social media to post positive, edifying posts. 
10. Go to the store for someone.
11. What would you add to this list...?
You see Church can’t actually be cancelled, it can only adapt.  
God bless you, wash your hands!
