Dear St. Andrew's Community,
In this time of uncertainty and anxiety in our world, we are following the advice of the Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego, and our local leaders in order to protect the most vulnerable in our communities.
If you or your children are feeling anxious in these uncertain times, print out one of these coloring pages and pray with crayons, markers, or colored pencils!
The main update this week is that according to the direction of our bishop, we will not meet for in-person worship until Easter at the earliest.
This news fills me with grief - I'm particularly struck by the loss of our weekly gathering: the energy in our sanctuary, the children running and playing, seekers being greeted by long-time parishioners.
Just imagine what a celebration we will have when we finally gather for worship again! Start planning now what food you'll bring, what songs we will sing, what food you'll make, and what a party it will be!
We are really learning right now that the church is not the building - the church is us, the people of God, whenever we connect. So connect with St. Andrew's in some different ways this week.
We are still the church. The Spirit of God is still calling the church into new life.
Please reach out with your prayer requests, and know that God is present in this uncertain time.
Mother Mary Lynn
