President's Message



He (Jesus) said to them "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all you soul, and with all your mind.  This is the greatest and most important command.  The second is like it:  Love your neighbor as yourself."

Matthew 22:37-39

February 2021

Dear Brothers and Sisters In Christ,

I hope this article finds you warm and well.  2021 has brought hope with a new presidential administration and a vaccine for COVID-19.  With the vaccination roll out underway, it’s moving slowly, and it will take time. Last week, Howard County Public Schools announced that students could return to school buildings 1-2 days a week, beginning March 1, 2021.  Of course, with limited students, masks, social distancing, and parental consent.  So what does this mean for St. Paul’s? It means that we have to continue to have patience.  I know that ‘s not what I want to hear, but it’s the reality of the situation.  Council realized that it was not economically prudent to continue indoor services when we opened the building last fall.  Outdoor services stopped due to the rise in cases and the temperature.  Council will revisit outdoor services at our March council meeting. So hang on, friends; we will get back to in-person worship. We have to continue to have patience. God continues to have our backs!

 


 

Peace,

Julie
