We have been thinking of you! Not only thinking of you but praying for you. During the new challenges we are facing, Cathy and I have adopted the mantra "Feed the faith. Starve the fear." We hope in some way connecting with you might help feed your faith.
Since we are no longer able to gather together in person to worship Cathy and I and a few of our friends quickly put together worship services for our churches. Cathy spend many hours the last couple days putting these together!!
We’ve received some positive comments on our first effort, so I thought I would use this blog to share them. Feel free to share the services or any links you find on the website with anyone who might benefit.

Trinity UMC’s service: DIY WORSHIP SERVICE (The toilet paper section is meant to be humous, but don’t lose the point please! A friend emailed to say a ring of men were buying up all the TP they could in South Florida and selling it at inflated prices had been arrested. These are crazy times!)
I’m going to start sharing some of the things we do at Trinity on our Bold Discipleship website. Free RightNow Media Christian video streaming is also available on the Beyond Sunday page: http://www.plymouthtrinityumc.com/beyond-sunday.html RNM has 1000’s of videos appropriate for families and people of all ages on all kinds of topics. Their videos may be a good place to turn in the midst of all the negative news in the world.
Our world is a different place this weekend than it was last weekend, but our God is the same. Even in a world that is not always good, God is good. All the time.
My encouragement this weekend and going forward is to spend as much time with God as you can. Keep up to date with what is going on, but listen to what God has to say to you more than what the world does.
“Feed the faith. Starve the fear.”
This is an important time for God’s people to be light and salt in a world that needs the hope, peace, and love of Jesus. Small courageous acts of love and kindness make all the difference in times like these.
Cathy and I are lifting our fellow “bold disciples” in prayer!
