WESTMINSTER WEEKLY

Westminster,
 
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Hebrews 10:24-25
 
A few weeks ago in his sermon, Bryan Mistele talked about the importance of meeting together. It’s been resounding in my head and heart the last few weeks as I think about our church. We need one another. It’s important that we find ways to gather together and encourage one another in our faith. I know that many of us are still concerned and cautious about Covid for many reasons. I understand this, and want you to know that we care deeply for you and want you to stay healthy during this season. But, like Bryan said, we still need to find ways to gather together. We need to get together in smaller groups. We need to reach out to others and make an effort to connect. 
 
As I write this, I’m also aware that there are many who are not as concerned about Covid but have developed new patterns in this season and waned in their commitment to Christian community. Again, I know and understand why and how this has happened. We’ve walked through nearly 2 years of a pandemic and our world has changed very much. I want you to hear this from a heart that loves you – detaching from community is not good for your soul. Something is missing when you aren’t here, and we miss you. I am sure that some of us need to pray through these things and ponder what God might be saying to us. 
 
This weekend we are studying Hebrews 11 as we continue our series, Greater. Whether online or in-person, I can’t wait to gather with you to worship our God.
 
Grateful,
Ryan
