“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” -‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:9-10‬

This is a good time to put into practice what the Apostle tells us here. Our Food Pantry is more important than ever, and many of you are faithfully serving there as you are able, and making donations to keep it running.

On a personal level in these weeks of “social distancing” we need to keep our eyes open to see the needs of others around us who are feeling the strain. What does your next door neighbor need today? A roll of toilet paper? A phone call? Just a friendly greeting on the street?

The other day the couple next door to us brought us a box of cookies from their favorite Italian bakery. They had written on the box, “Thank you for being such great neighbors.” They’re fairly new, so they probably haven’t found out yet how crabby I can be. Some people are just plain lonely. This “social distancing” results in people feeling - wait for it - socially distant. A friendly “hello” goes a long way these days, even if we aren’t shaking hands. Grace is another word for “beauty.”

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.” -‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:18‬
