The past several weeks have brought about a fair amount of uncertainty, concern and fear into our society.  The Corona virus has impacted our economy and the way we interact with one another as our health officials try to spread out the impact of the virus so that those who need health assistance are able to receive it in a timely fashion.

Certainly, connecting with one another and gathering around the life-giving gifts of our Saviour Jesus Christ is an essential service that we need on a daily and weekly basis.  Through Word and Sacrament we find the gift of forgiveness and eternal life that is essential to all.  With the gift of forgiveness in Jesus we have peace, comfort and hope even in the midst of the pandemic we are facing.  We know that there is life in Him and nothing can take that away from us.

The fourth commandment calls us to respect the governing authorities placed over us as they are appointed by God for our well-being in a sinful world.  Alberta Health requests that:

  • we limit gatherings to fewer than 50 people, including places of worship

  • we all stay home when at all possible, and restrict contact with others

  • we engage in heightened hygiene; washing hands thoroughly and often, keeping a distance of 6 feet between people in public

  • that seniors and individuals with compromised health be particularly vigilant

After much consideration and discussion, the leadership of Concordia Lutheran Church has decided to take some measures in regard to worship:

We understand the economic impact this has had on some, although thankfully our various governments are taking measures to ease these stresses.  If you are able to continue your regular offerings, you can:  

It is in Christ that we place our hope and know that He is “the light of the world”.  Through Him we are also “light in the Lord” as the Epistle lesson encourages us to trust in Christ and to then walk and shine that light into a world of darkness.  With all that is going on in the world, there is no better time for us to shine the light of our faith and trust in Jesus Christ so that the darkness of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty that people are facing can see the peace, comfort, joy and hope of being a part of Christ’s family the church. With this in mind, look out for your neighbours and anyone in your community who might need help or reassurance.
