Dear Trinity family and friends,
As we continue to navigate this challenging COVID-19 pandemic, one thing has become absolutely clear–communication and community with one another has never been more important. Someone recently asked me, 
“I can understand how you can pray for someone face-to-face and in-person. But praying for someone on Facebook Live or on YouTube, how does that work? That doesn’t seem real to me.”
I said that I understood what they said. Being in-person is the best way for anyone. But in this new world of the media, I have had to make adjustments. I said to that person,
“To me, that behind the cell phone or computer web cam or camera is a real person. When I am praying I feel close to that person, though it is a camera in front of me. I can just reach out and touch them. I believe people feel that.”
Jesus put it this way, 
“If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any (one) thing…it shall be done for them of my Father who is in Heaven” 
(Matthew 18:19).
For 32 years as a pastor I have been in person with people and have made contact with them, personally. Then overnight, because of this pandemic, I have had to learn a new method of reaching everyone. Perhaps people have changed. I believe there is still a deep inner desire for people to reach and touch one another. As we touch and agree, God works His wonders in our lives together at Trinity. 
The same is true of every email I sent to you. I can come to your home or computer every week. More than ever before! Or a card I send in the mail. 
So, when I am talking to that cell phone camera or computer, I feel a closeness to you and your life. There is no traveling or waiting–at the speed of light, we can come together in the quietness of your home. I can share God’s Word, I can pray, as if I was there with you. I can agree with you in the Spirit. We can become one in faith and love. 
These past months are not lost time for us at Trinity. In fact, we have gained ground in new areas for reaching people for Christ. I will look forward to speaking with you again soon, on via Facebook Live and Youtube in the future! Let’s touch and agree!

5. This week in worship
This weekend we want to look at a very popular part of scripture, one that we all know well and are often quoting. It is a verse about hope! We are going to find out why it is so popular and how to apply it to our lives. Here’s the verse, was has become our benediction in worship for the past month,
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
The people of Israel needed a word of hope for their lives as they were taken into captivity by the Babylonians and we need a word of hope for us today. The coronavirus has changed our lives and churches. So many changes are happening it makes our head spin. We want to go back to some sense of normalcy but it doesn’t seem possible. God has a word of HOPE for you and this weekend we will speak that work forth in our message. Prepare for this weekend’s sermon by reading Jeremiah 29, especially verses 10-14. 
We all have friends and family who are struggling with the upheaval in our lives caused by the Coronavirus. Invite them to join you for worship online. I know this message will speak to them.
