Dear Beloved Walker Chapel Family,
 
You are very much in my thoughts and prayers. I hope given all that has taken place since we last gathered, you are each one safe and processing best you can all that has transpired this past week in our nation. It is indeed a dark and troubling time. As I have continued to watch the unfolding of this week’s heartbreaking events, I was constantly reminded that when we are heartbroken, God weeps and grieves with us. I often think about history and the multitude of ways God’s people have found themselves lost, wondering what would happen next. This feels “particularly extreme” because we are the ones living this piece of history.
 
I am strengthened by the reality that God is with us and that even in the midst of turmoil and uncertainty, God in God’s time, will bring us out of this darkness and help us see what we need to see.  My prayer is that we, as people of faith will be convicted to live more fully into our baptismal vow…”to accept the freedom and power God gives to resist evil, injustice and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves.”
 
I am confident that you are praying about and looking for ways to help. What is a helpful Christian response? What are some tangible and faithful ways a community so geographically close to our nation’s capital can act? In addition to fervent prayer, what can we do?
 
Tomorrow morning, I will be inviting us to join in on January 11, 2021 at 7PM for a ZOOM prayer meeting. We’ll have music, conversation and prayer. I hope you will make plans to tune in and my hope is that many others will too.
 
For now, I am looking forward to seeing you in the morning for Sunday's Cool! at 10am and worship at 10:30am!  I am praying for our time together.

Blessings,

Pastor Lynne
Rev. Dr. Lynne Alley-Grant
