Dear Friends,

Our help is in the name of the Lord, maker of heaven and earth. [Ps. 124:8]

As I share these words from the Psalmist, I am mindful that this is a time of anxiety and isolation for so many of us, as we grapple with a world that looks and feels so different than it did just a few weeks ago. And yet, my deep faith in God helps me to know that all will be well. God, our Creator, our Strength, our Redeemer, the one who created heaven and the earth, also created us. God loves us, we are God's children, and God will continue to protect us.

God indeed created us to be in relationship, and for myself, and I suspect for many of you, being apart from one another, from the church family we all love, is difficult. Although we cannot see each other in person for awhile longer, I know I am sustained by the prayers, calls and emails that are circulating throughout our church family. I pray you feel God's presence in those gifts of connection, and know that your pastor prays several times a day for each of you and your families both near and far.

Imagine our celebration when we can come together to worship again in person! I look forward to that very much. In the meantime, I pray many of you were able to watch and participate in our online worship last Sunday. The video stays online, so it (as well as past services) are there for your spiritual nourishment.

************

PLEASE, if you need anything at all - a conversation, a prayer, someone to run an errand to the store or pharmacy, etc - call me at 352-748-2530 or your deacon and we will help you out.

************

On Sunday morning, March 29, there will be another videotaped service of worship for you to watch online on the church's website. Go to fpcwildwood.org and click on "videotaped services" to watch. My prayer is that this time of worship will be meaningful and helpful for you.

*************

from Chuck Loser, Spiritual Life Elder:

Your smile could be a message of cheer from God to a needy soul.

(Scripture: Numbers 6:22-27) from: Our Daily Bread sample addition 2020.

**********

Friends, may you continue to know of God's love for each of you, and may you feel God's presence in your life as we rejoice in the simplest of things right now - a smile, a phone call, a breath of fresh air, sunlight.....

I leave you with this link to one of my favorite hymns.

"See" you online this Sunday!

In Christ's Love,

Pastor Susan
