Question: What is our only hope in life and death?
Answer: That we are not our own but belong, body and soul, both in life and death, to God and to our Savior Jesus Christ. 
Many times, I have used these words from the New City Catechism to try to calm down an ill-tempered child. Lately, however, I’ve had to remind myself of this truth. My efforts on both fronts, sadly, haven’t always been successful. Like Chris mentioned in his sermon, I have also experienced the stages of concern, sadness, and anger over the trial that has come to our collective doorstep. I’ve found myself depressed as everything that was “normal” has now been kicked out from under me. I’m sure you’ve felt the same way, to one degree or another. No matter how this trial has affected you, there’s no doubt that it has. So, what is our anchor point for weathering this storm? What or who will help us maintain our buoyancy as the waves batter our ships.
First, know you are being prayed for and are loved. Your staff and elders are here to help in any way we can. Let’s keep the lines of communication open and the conversations flowing.
As we look ahead to Sunday, I want to share a few thoughts to help you prepare for your time of in-home worship.

On behalf of Toby, our musicians, Luke in Livestream, Garrett in sound, and myself, I want to thank everyone for your support, prayers, texts, emails, FB posts and pictures of your family gathered in worship yesterday morning. Our peak was around 340 devices connected to our Livestream! So encouraging!
I've been asked, "How was it?"
Here are four reminders of what you can do in midst of all the uncertainty and head-spinning changes. I’ve carved these out of tomorrow’s sermon so we can stay focused on Romans 8:28. Much more could be said, but this is enough for today.
