We are all tired of wandering through the wilderness and long for the promised land. Just like the Israelites grew tired of waiting and wandering, I think we are there too. We are so very tired of the pandemic, but I continue to hope that we are almost there. We are almost out of the wilderness. Many have been vaccinated, and continue to do so. We are blessed to have enough vaccines to begin sharing them with developing nations with the hope that we won’t develop as many new variants. They are making good progress with vaccines for children so that they can return safely in the fall.
We are almost there, but what comes next? How do we come out on the other side? This Sunday, and the one in between pastors, I will be exploring these themes about what comes next and how we get there.
If you weren’t able to make it to Messy Church last week, we had an amazing time exploring Pentecost through crafts, food (cupcakes for the church’s birthday), and even a magic show. It was a great time for all, and if you missed it, I can put together a kit for you and your children to do together.
On Sunday, June 20, we will have Donuts with Dad. I hope you can stop by and enjoy it with us before you go hear Collin’s last sermon here, “One Last Time.”
