Worshipping at the Lamington Crossroads Since 1740 
 
We are a family of faith wrapping our arms around God's world
and making Jesus Christ a way of life
through worship, as we praise and glorify God;
through study, as we listen for God's Word in body, mind and spirit;
through mission, as we embody God's love in service to the world;
through giving, as we express gratitude to God;
through fellowship, as we love and care for one another.
 
 
Important Communication

 

Dear friends in Christ,

 

Our Christian faith is full of remembrances: 


- Moses to the Israelites, Commandment #4: “Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy.”

- At Holy Communion: “Do this in remembrance of me.”

- “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matt. 28:20b)


We remember how God has acted in the past to affirm his love, mercy, justice and grace for humankind. And we remember how apostles and preachers and teachers have handed down the holy stories from generation to generation so that the practice of our faith becomes a living memorial. Christians understand the importance of remembrance and memorial.

 

This weekend we have come around again to the national holiday known as Memorial Day, a day set aside to remember the fallen from wars and conflicts. We’ve converted the day into marking the beginning of the summer season – picnics, barbeques and going to the beaches. But not forgetting to remember, we also have rituals to help us recall why this day was set aside – in gratitude to those who gave their lives so that freedom, equality, justice and peace might be held out as worldwide hope for the world as God intended it to be.

 

This year – the year of the coronavirus pandemic – we should add other names to the list of those to be remembered, remembered for battling a different kind of conflict in all its tragic aspects and fallout. You know who I mean – doctors, nurses, first responders, health care workers, grocery clerks, delivery drivers, sanitation crews, funeral directors, mental health professionals, artists, singers, friends.

And may we never forget that, no matter what befalls us, Jesus has said to us, “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.”
