Pastor Dave reminds us that this past year, although difficult, has been a demonstration of God’s love which has been revealed in the ways in which we have cared for one another and prayed for each other. During hardships we often find ways of renewing our relationships with God and those who are important to us. This is not the time to lose hope but to continue in faith.

In the next year we have much to look forward to. The vaccinations are out and will be available in our area in a few months. This will be the beginning of the end of this pandemic that has impacted all of our lives. Over time we will be able to look back upon these times as part of our history as we begin to recover and rebuild. Pastor Dave encourages us to stay positive and to look forward to renewal and flourishing as disciples of Jesus Christ.
