Small Church for Small Groups as We Social Distance

We're told by doctors to have no more than ten in a group. The Corona Virus dwells among us.

This little church pictured above might hold four in the pews and a preacher at the front behind a podium. The four in the congregation could sit far enough apart to be social distancing.

We have a small church, but yesterday was the third Sunday we've cancelled worship. I miss our little group. I miss church.

Oh, sure, I see church services on TV, but it's not the same as being there.

My heart breaks for pastors who are preaching to an empty sanctuary.  Small sanctuary, or huge, it's hard to do!  There's no energy feedback, but they bravely deliver a message as if the pews were filled.

We need corporate worship.  In Scripture, God told us to meet together, but churches will be shut down on Easter. Can you imagine? It's the first time ever in American history that this will happen. Churches closed on the most important day in Christendom? Wow! Satan is dancing with glee. 

He's keeping us from spreading the good news! Jesus has conquered death! We live in the land of the dying on the way to the land of the living, and Satan knows all about it. He wants us to live eternally with him. He hopes, that by keeping us from the Good News, that we can live below with him forever.  

Fear Not. Satan's days are limited. 

God will help us deliver His message. The one of hope and faith. The one to eternal life in glory.

We'll be back together here on earth again soon, and we'll be stronger than ever. Either in tiny churches or large cathedrals. 

In the meantime, stay safe and draw near the Lord. Thank Him for the Easter season to come.

The Way We Are

Pastor Paul

If Paul and I were canines, we'd probably look like these two.  Actually, I'd hope we could look this good!


The way we really look.

We don't have pets, but our granddaughter is a professional dog groomer. Does that count?

Sick of Isolation

Are you as tired of confinement as I am?

We can't do anything about it. It's for our safety.

This Corona Virus will make it's way through the population, and we'll return to being and doing whatever it is that we do.

In the meantime, order one of my Sarah books.

Are you ready to be glad and not sad?
Smile again? Sarah will make you giggle.
She will take your mind off the scary stuff.

Where is Kindness?

Clue into Kindness

Are you as tired of the political season as I am? So much ranting and raving. Name calling too. People are throwing a lot of misinformation around also. How do we wade through it all? How do we stay positive in a negative world?

If we all clued into kindness again, it would be a start.

We've forgotten how to disagree in a civil manner. 

Do you suppose people were never taught simple kindness? If so, that would explain some of the ugliness going around.

In my book, Clue into Kindness, Alan was never taught how to be kind. He followed his dad's abusive behavior. His wife, Georgia, came from a loving family. She made a decision to love him into changing.

She didn't succeed with her ambitions, but Alan did change his ways.  God will often intervene whether we want Him to or not. And Allan didn't, but boy! God hit him on the head, and he learned fast.

This is a novella, a short read, but I think the book will give you insight into kindness.
