As we reach out to our congregation during this unprecedented time, we want to remind each other that our social distancing has brought about an extraordinary global solidarity. An awareness of our shared interests and sympathies that tie all people around the world together as one. We need each other now more than ever. And not only through respecting our social distancing as a way to love our neighbors, but also as a way to think beyond ourselves and to let go of our own personal worries. We hope that you are able to use this time and space to be kind, gentle and patient with yourselves while finding ways to continue to serve others around the world. And with that, our Lenten Almsgiving campaign continues.
We collected an additional $1000 at our last church service, adding a water buffalo, a goat, a llama, chickens, trees and bees to our Ark. Please make checks payable to Christ Church with Lenten Alms on the memo line and mail them to Christ Church at 90 Kings Highway, Middletown NJ 07748.
Again, whether you choose to support others through our Lenten Almsgiving campaign or via other means, serving each other for the greater good will continue to sustain us as we move forward together in solidarity. -Robyn Gerin
