Dear members and friends of the North Deering Church. As you all know a new virus (Coronavirus 19) has been updated to a pandemic, which simply means that this virus is now present throughout the world. Most recently, this virus has found its way to the State of Maine. As a pastor, my role is to be a shepherd for the flock. My concern is for the safety of everyone that is under my watch. For a few weeks, the North Deering Church will be in recess for Sunday worship. This doesn’t mean that the church ceases to be the church. It means that we won’t physically be at our worship house. It does mean that we will all be united together spiritually as we remember each other when we are away from one another. We need to remember that this is not a time to panic or be reactive but to sit tight, and know that God is in control. Let’s consider this time an extended Sabbath when we can take a moral inventory of our lives and see what God is trying to say to us. My personal theology is that the Lord Jesus is sovereign and in control of all things and He watches over us and will guide our steps. The Holy Spirit will provide a hedge of protection around us because that is what a loving Lord and God will do. Remember Jesus came into the midst of them and gave them peace that dispelled all of their fears.
May the Lord dispel the fears that we may have during this unprecedented time.
Pastor Mike Glidden
