Greetings in Christ! 

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! Let us rejoice in the summer-like  weather we’ve been enjoying, and let us be glad that the humidity levels have dropped a bit! As we write this  morning, the sky is a brilliant shade of blue, and there’s a fresh breeze blowing, making for a comfortable  morning. Yes, we need some rain, and the forecast seems to promise a bit of liquid relief in the coming days,  but for now, if you’re able, get outside and enjoy! 

As we draw ever-closer to those “lazy, hazy days of summer,” we invite you to try to set aside time  every day to be quiet and listen for the still, small voice of God. We are blessed with so many beautiful places  to step away from the busyness of life, and to settle ourselves for a few moments; beaches, trails, harbors,  lighthouses, and more beckon us to come and “set a spell.” We’ve been through so much due to the  pandemic, and many of us feel some pressure to try to make up for lost time, to try to cram as much activity  into each day as is humanly possible, but we urge you to resist the temptation to overload your days with  events and gatherings, and take advantage of the incomparable gift of peace. We’re certain that you’ll find  yourself better-equipped to face whatever comes your way, and most importantly, you’ll be so much closer to  your God for having spent quiet time with him. As always, God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is  good! 

In Christ!

Yes, my soul, find rest in God;  my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5

Wishing you joy and peace in your day! Remember, God’s got this.
