Another beautiful, but bitterly cold day and the trees in Colzium are just beginning to put on leaves. It has been an odd spring so far, but then again, it has been a pretty odd year, all in all.
On Wednesday 7 April, the Re-opening team, along with some volunteers, did a systems test in the Sanctuary to see if we could merge a physical service with a Conferoo service. I am delighted to say that, while it will take some practice, and a few hiccups no doubt, things worked well. Our next step is to monitor the Covid19 situation and decide on an appropriate return date.
It is going to be a while before things start to look more normal and, the world over, there are going to be things that we leave behind. It was the old normal, after all, that got us into this situation. But, whatever we go through, we go through together.
So, let's keep going. We have just celebrated Easter and are now on the journey to Ascension Day and Pentecost. The drama of the Church year is wrapped around and in us in every moment. I'm glad to be on this journey with you all.
"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want ...
Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff they comfort me.
Psalm 23: 1 and 4
God bless you all.
