Well dear friends, here we are on Tuesday morning still practicing physical distancing and wondering when all of this might come to an end. Sunday morning's online service didn't quite go as I had planned, but hopefully many of you took the time to experience a Sunday evening time of worship. You had to engage a little more than normal by clicking a few buttons, but hopefully you figured it out. I heard from Mrs. Betty, from Dorothy and Jeremy, and a couple of others that the service finally came through. We will certainly try again next week since it looks like we won't be gathering at least for one more Sunday. Maybe by Palm Sunday all of this confusion will be over.
Perhaps you struggled on Sunday. I certainly did. I have always tried to be transparent, and I will not stop now. Sunday I felt tremendous defeat because I could not stop myself from thinking how I had let you down by not having everything easy for 10:30 am. I know I could not control the technology issues, yet still Satan's forces screamed "LOSER!" into my Spirit. Then, our family did what hopefully some of you did and watched the service from Gateway Baptist Church in Irmo, South Carolina. I hope you will click on the link www.fromtheporch.org to learn what God taught me Sunday.
You all are special to me and to my family. We can't wait to be back together. Please reach out and let me know how things are going. You are loved!
