Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church

The President of the Bahamas Conference of the Methodist Church, Rev. L. Carla R. Culmer, issued a second letter to Churches on the Corona Virus/COVID-19. See below.

18th March, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

You would have received my first letter this past Sunday on the Coronavirus/COVID -19 pandemic. At that time I indicated that the Conference would share additional information in the days ahead.

The nation was advised on Sunday, 15th March, 2020 that the first case of COVID -19 was confirmed. Today we are learning that there are now three cases. The health and well-being of The Bahamas is now at great risk. The Prime Minister outlined measures to be taken by the government, the citizens and all people in the country. The Governor General signed a Proclamation declaring that a state of emergency exists in our country.

We are in uncertain, unexpected and extraordinary times; times when we must pray, exercise our faith and adhere to the guidelines as prescribed by the government so that we will be our brother’s keeper while also taking care of ourselves.

Because of the enormous risk of the virus being spread throughout the country and the way it is spread, the matter of social distancing by persons is a serious consideration that needs to be addressed. “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one.”

On Tuesday, 17th March, 2020, the Executive and the Pastoral members of the Nassau Region met to discuss the way forward. There were many points of view. Bearing in mind that individuals may have the virus but be asymptomatic, that it is spread virally, that it lives on surfaces for various periods of time and that it is spread in large gatherings, there is the urgent need to curtail the spread of the virus. The decision of the meeting is that the BCMC services and meetings in individual churches will be suspended for three Sundays, in the first instance.

This temporary suspension of services means that we will have to deepen our use of technology. In the meeting a Committee was formed of ministers whose churches currently have technological capabilities. This committee will determine ways that we share the Gospel of Jesus through the internet and via the radio. In the interim the following will be done:

• A one hour Prayer & Share Service will be aired on Radio Bahamas beginning this Sunday 22nd March at 4:00 p.m. Ministers and Deacons will be the leaders in the service. The service may be heard on ZNS AM1540, FM 104.5 or online at znsbahamas.com. You may also access it via the ZNS App. Please be sure to tune in.
• Leaders will set up WhatsApp groups as a means of continuity of service, their availability to members for counseling and prayer, for providing short meditations and generally to keep in touch with members and adherents and provide care and assistance both spiritually and physically as they are able.
• pages of the Conference and Churches will
be used to stream services and provide devotional and
inspirational messages. Please see the listed
information to access this information.
• On Facebook, they are The Bahamas Conference of
the Methodist Church, Global Village Methodist Church,
St. Michael’s Methodist Church, Nassau Bahamas, (also
on YouTube), Ascension Methodist Church, and
gtwesleymc.
• Ebenezer is accessed at [email protected]
• We also want to encourage our congregants, to
continue to support their Churches with their tithes and
offering as they are able because the ministry of the
church must continue during this time.
• As we go through this crisis period when worry and
concern is being felt, we are reminded in Deuteronomy
31:8 to exercise our faith: “It is the Lord who goes
before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or
forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”

Sincerely,

L. Carla R. Culmer (Rev.)
President

Dear Trinity Family:

I hope you are are taking care of yourself and those close to you... main things to remember and to do are:
- good personal hygiene (wash your hands often),
- careful cleaning/sanitizing of the areas/surfaces you use/touch regularly
- social distancing (keep at least 3 feet from anyone else, and avoid groups)
- and PRAY!

Many are questioning why this virus has spread around the world. I’ve heard the suggestion that it is from the devil, and he is trying to kill many people off before they have a chance to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I’ve also heard the suggestion that it is from God, and is a way of getting our attention and making us think about spiritual things, and forcing us to change our life. Both can’t be right! There will be many variations on the ‘why’ of this virus... many confusing theologies of what God is doing, what God is allowing, and what God cannot stop from happening. I hope you are not confused, but your faith in God is strengthened through this experience.

The ‘how’ of COVID-19 seems to be more and more clearly determined by the health care experts and the research scientists who are investigating this disease. They are educating us everyday from what they are learning. We have faith in God, yes, and we trust God to help us, even spare us. But this not mean that we ignore the experts and their guidance. We have to make wise choices to follow instructions, in order to slow down the spread and give our country a better chance of coping with this health challenge. The officials are doing whatever it takes to prevent our health care system from being overwhelmed... and we all need to do our part.

Let me use an example from the Bible to illustrate how faith in God, accompanied by following instructions, saved another group at another time and place. In Exodus chapter 12 we have recorded the instructions that God gave Moses to pass on to the Israelites -- it’s a long chapter, but worth your while to read all of it. Several times in the course of these instructions being given, the people are reminded how important it is for them to follow, and to do exactly as they are told. The last part of verse 27, along with verse 28 summarizes it for us:
The Israelites knelt down and worshiped. Then they went and did what the Lord
had commanded Moses and Aaron.

In the Epistle of James we are reminded that “faith without works is dead” -- read James 2:14-26. This is the point: Our faith in God is real, and it is demonstrated when we wisely follow the instructions given us -- instructions based on information revealed by God. This is how the Israelites survived the last plague and were liberated from Egypt. This is how we will get through this trial... as we are strong in our faith, and wise in our actions!

In our Lenten Study Guide today we read about the responsibility we all have to guide, encourage and strengthen each other. And there is a wonderful prayer by Carol Micklem and Roger Gomes, which I will repeat here -- make this your prayer today:
God our heavenly Father, you are light and life to us. You have promised never to leave us or forsake us: you are with us always, to the end of the world.
All the same, things do come between us and you. Sometimes it is our own fault, as when we are so full of our own virtue that we are no longer looking in your direction, or when angry thoughts blot you out. And sometimes it is not our fault, but the way the world is. Chance often brings us some worry or sadness which fills our minds so that everything is darkened.
Lord, when we are in the valley of that shadow, be with us still. Even if we cannot see you, stay by us so that we never get lost. And let your Holy Spirit show us day by day how we can better keep you in view.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I hope the Lenten Study is proving helpful and encouraging. That’s a resource you already have (if not, download it from our page, from our website, or request it and I’ll send it via email). There are some other resources that you can link up with -- from a few of our churches, and our Conference -- in order to get spiritual food and encouragement. These are listed below:

Facebook:
- Trinity Methodist Church
- The Bahamas Conference of The Methodist Church
- Global Village Methodist Church
- St. Michael’s Methodist Church
- Ascension Methodist Church
- Grants Town Wesley Methodist Church
- Ebenezer Methodist Church Events

Stay safe... be careful... pray hard!

Blessings,
Bill

Isaiah 53:3–7

He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.

But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed, and he was afflicted,
yet he opened not his mouth;
like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,
and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
so he opened not his mouth.

Good Friday Service: This morning at 11am at Trinity

The Lenten Study Guide, written by our very own Rev. Bill Higgs, is now available electronically on our website. Visit www.tmcbahamas.and download it using the button at the bottom of the home page.

For each of the Forty Days of Lent, there is a scripture passage to read, a brief meditation to think about, and a prayer focus. Each day closes with a point to ponder -- a quote from He Chose the Nails, a book by Max Lucado.

In the ‘Sunday Focus’ each week we take a closer look at some of the significant features of our spiritual pilgrimage through the season of Lent, and challenge ourselves to become wiser, to grow stronger, and to deepen our commitment to follow Christ.
