As have now moved into March there are several reasons to rejoice. We are seeing our COVID numbers dropping in terms of new infection and hospitalization rates. Vaccines are rolling out slower than anticipated, but they are rolling out. Many churches which have not been open yet are making plans to do so in March so they will be ready for the Palm Sunday and Easter celebrations. These are all reasons to celebrate, and after the year we have all been through, we need to celebrate!
I am also celebrating the wonderful Zoom conference we had on February 11th which we called our Outreach Strategy Discussion. I want to thank our three presenters for their wonderful description of ways to stay active in connecting with the community around them. If you were not able to hear Ronald Vides, Jason Robertson, and Bogdan Kipko, you can see their presentations here https://vimeo.com/ocsba.
I pray that this March is unlike any we have seen as we begin to move past this global pandemic and into a time of greater Gospel impact than ever before. May the Lord bless you all as we prepare for the celebration of our Lord’s Resurrection Sunday!
