Is That Okay?

Recently there have been stories in the news, questions in our minds, and concerns from others regarding the future, the church, and the impact of decisions made to be too close to people too soon. We tend to rely upon others to tell us when something is okay or not, but in this uncharted territory of social distancing and public health, it can be difficult to know who to trust and who really has the authority to be trusted. This week’s lesson is a guided discussion between our Elders, Ron and Larry, and me, Pastor Steve. Spoiler alert – we don’t have any absolute answers either. But, perhaps in the discussion you will hear the Spirit speak to you about the balancing voices that give us reliable guidance and the certainty that God always moves us forward through difficult choices (even when all we want is to go back to the way things used to be). His desire is not for us to live in fear and dread, but to draw close to Him and to overcome the challenges that keep us socially distant from one another. When others ask, “Is That Okay?” be prepared to confidently say, “God is in control, and that means that it will all be okay.”
