May 1, 2020
We worked through the pandemic at RLC in April and experienced Holy Week and Easter in a way our church has not experienced before and yet it still happened even with the pandemic. It reminds me a little of the “Grinch Who Stole Christmas” because the spirit of Christmas happened without all the things that one thinks one needs to make it happen. Easter happened any way!
As we look to May, the “Safer at Home” restrictions are still in place until May 26th and services at RLC may resume on May 31st. So, RLC will continue to experience our faith and our community the way we did in April. In May, we also celebrate Mother’s Day and I want all moms to know that you are loved and appreciated even if it is not the way we usually celebrate this day.
I believe that our inner world (spiritual) determines our experience of our outer (physical) world. I like Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” song because it asks us to first look inside and make a change. For the month of May, I would like you to look at what you have been thinking and feeling before the pandemic and now during the pandemic. What have you noticed? What can you change or transform?
Here is what I have been seeing and noticing about my pandemic experience:
When I first heard the news of restrictions being extended, I was frustrated. Logically, I completely understand, but emotionally I did not experience this as good news. I believe that we can honor the science and go to work and live our lives, but it will not be like it was before plus we haven’t figured how to make it all work together. So, until we do determine how our new world can work until a vaccine can be created, we need to create a new normal. So, RLC what will our new normal be? I ask you to send me or other council members your ideas for us to brainstorm.
President, Church Council
