  • Looking for a quality pre-school? We've got that!

In July we began offering an “in-person” Eucharist at 8 am. This seems to have gone very well. We studied the protocols provided by the public health experts and devised our specific procedures for St Peter’s. It has been a great blessing to be able to “do” what Jesus intended us to, albeit with certain emergency provisions (like no Cup, no Peace, no singing, etc.). We are continuing to work on our video media. The Council and I have been discerning what our next steps will be for the Fall.

Our situation as a church is not unlike all others: institutions, government, industry, school, and most certainly families and individuals. We have to remain fluid and ready to respond. All of us are wandering around the wilderness of this pandemic. Like the Israelites in their exodus from Egypt and search for the Promised Land, we don’t know exactly who or what we will encounter.

What we do know is that what we can rely on is the Manna of God. God, through his Word will continue to nourish us, and even teach us, in the midst of these trials. God gave the Jews exactly what they needed for the day; no more, no less. God gives us the same provision as well. As we pray, “give us today our daily bread,” we remember God’s loving gifts to us as well. God gives us not what we want, but what we actually need.

God rained down on them manna to eat,
and gave them the grain of heaven.
Mortals ate of the bread of angels;
he sent them food in abundance.   Psalm 78.24-25

Pastor Ed Barnett
