You Are the Church - Scattered
We the church, ecclesia in Greek, meaning literally "called out," yet to be sent truly being sent this season of Lent. The outbreak of Corona Virus 19 now is pandemic. Good Shepherd campus and Savage Campus of the United Methodist Church made a difficult decision to cancel church on Sundays for the preferred option for the initial collaborative effort of ending of Corona virus pandemic with all the socio-political connections around the globe.
Since March 17, 2020, President Trump requested for
avoidance of gathering of greater than a group of 10.
Bishop Easterling, the Episcopal leader of The Baltimore-
Washington Conference of The United Methodist Church
declared close of the liturgical gathering in the 632 local
churches at least for three consecutive Sundays in March 2020.
Many worshipers are frustrated with their distance to their
houses of prayer. This should be true moment that we
can be the church!
While stay away from one another for the initial collaborative effort to delay the spread of the viral infection, we should stay connected. Good Shepherd and Savage will offer a few ways to get us connected. For this work, we need to help one another.
