Shawnee Presbyterian Church




Light in the Tunnel

I don’t know that we are seeing the end of the tunnel of our journey through Covid19, but we definitely have some light along the path. Sunday, March 7 Shawnee Presbyterian Church will return to IN-PERSON WORSHIP. We will still need to wear our masks and keep our physical distance from one another, but we can once again be in the same room as we gather to worship. Our Facebook Live and ONLINE presence through our website, will continue without a change helping us to truly worship together as a congregation with extended possibilities.

In The image of an uncertain tunnel may be appropriate not only for our response to Covid19, but also our current journey through Lent. In the midst of what was normal, Jesus came into the lives of his Disciples and the crowds. With what appeared to be the presence of a Messiah to lead the people of Israel out of their confines of the Roman Empire’s presence was actually something quite different as Jesus spoke of God being Merciful, Graceful, and even Saving. Jesus taught about care for the poor and oppressed while repeatedly speaking of His own death to come for the redemption of Israel. Lent then seems to be intruding into our time of warmer weather and hopeful healing of the people around us. With great hope we can journey together as an excited gathering of the people of God with our focus on what Jesus taught and did for us. Let
us then continue to prepare for Passion Week, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday completing the promise Jesus brings to us anew each year.

In Ministry Together,
Pastor Craig
