Beloved Walker Chapel,

God calls us to carry each other's burdens.  What does that look like during a pandemic? What does that look like as cities, states and towns prepare to "reopen" and we all prepare for re-entry into our lives? Even during "normal" times, we’ve all known a friend carrying a heavy burden and yet so often, we don’t know how to help even when we want to. I got to thinking about all this when a colleague sent me this piece in the New Yorker by Dr. Atul Gawande on all the many burdens the coronavirus is forcing us to bear.

As we bear the burden by sheltering in place as a means of watching over one another in love, let's be together again this Sunday at 10:30am on Facebook Live at facebook.com/walkerchapel.org/live, preceded by Sunday's Cool! at 10am. As we think about ways to offer those most burdened by COVID19 comfort, please contribute to our ongoing food drive again this Saturday and Sunday 1pm-3pm at the Chapel

The COVID-19 pandemic aggravates problems the Chapel through its ministry has long sought to alleviate. Those problems include poverty, racism and mistreatment of migrants. Coronavirus can't thwart our resolve for this ministry, rather it strengthens our resolve for justice like never before. 

See you Sunday, 

Pastor Lynne
