Dear members of RLC,
As I said in my previous email, the situation with the coronavirus is fluid and changing rapidly. In light of the most recent information sent to me by our Bishop, Paul Erickson, I have make the decision to cancel worship and all other activities at RLC for the month of March.
It may be that this timeframe will need to be extended, but we will do that when it becomes necessary. April 5 is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week: we will hold out hope that we will be able to remember these events in Jesus’ life in a communal setting. However, if not, we will do so connected spiritually in prayer and, to the best of our ability, through social media.
You will soon be sent information about a phone tree: we are asking that you all participate so that we can stay in contact with one another, especially those who live alone or have health issues.
Also, continue to check our webpage for updates and a place to interact and share prayer requests.
I chose the name Ubuntu over 10 years ago. It is a word that reminds us that what happens to one of us, happens to all of us. It means that “I am because we are”. This time in our collective history reminds us of the same thing. We are in this together. We are blessed to be a blessing.
God has and will continue to find a way to bring blessing, even through the coronavirus pandemic.
Peace and love,
Pastor Mary Ubuntu
