MESSAGE FROM YOUR MINISTER: APRIL 02, 2020

As a student minister years ago, one of the women I visited in long-term care asked me each time to read Psalm 46: “God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble. Therefore we will not fear.” It seems that these words of reassurance are relevant to our current struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic. Perhaps more than ever, we need to find sources of hope, replacing lament with gratitude: thanking health care professionals who are going above and beyond every day; thanking farmers, truck drivers and grocery store workers who grow, transport, and stock our food; thanking businesses who are manufacturing much needed medical equipment; thanking political and medical leaders who offer strict guidelines for survival.

But we also seek spiritual guidance in these stressful times, and what better place to find it than in the Bible? There are many billboards in Grey/Bruce displaying words of comfort, quoted from scripture. One example I’ve noticed includes these reassuring words of Jesus from Matthew 11: 28, 29:  “Come to me all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and learn from me, for I am humble in my heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

On Palm Sunday, April 5 this year, perhaps we’ll be thinking of the humility shown by Jesus, as he rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. And we’ll remember the joyous crowds and their words of fervent praise, as they spread their cloaks and palm branches on the road, shouting “Hosanna in the highest heaven.” We may not be waving palm branches this Sunday, but perhaps we’ll think of their significance, as a symbol of hope and perseverance in troubled times. Blessings on the journey through Holy Week, 

Rev. Cathy
