Weekly Words for the Journey

To My Beloved PBBC Community

“When this is over, may we never again take for granted a handshake with a stranger, full shelves at the store, conversations with neighbors, a crowded theater, we hoped to be Friday night out, the taste of communion, a routine checkup, the school rush each morning, coffee with a friend, the stadium roaring, each deep breath, a boring Tuesday, life itself. When this ends, may we find that we have become more like the people we wanted to be, we were called to be, we hoped to be. And may we stay that way – better for each other because of the worst.” (Laura Kelly Fanucci)

I shared these words in my sermon on Sunday, and this is certainly our hope, that after this difficult time and every difficult time, we become better for each other…more caring, more compassionate, more mindful, more like the people God has created us to be in the world.

Thank you to all who have adopted members and all who are making face masks! We have more in the church office if you need any, including smaller sizes for our children. May we be thankful for God’s blessing, may we pray for God’s people, and may we trust in God’s promise to be with us always…

Missing you and sending more love for the journey,
Pastor Claudine
