by Jamie Lynn Haskins, co-editor, Acting on Faith

God of death and resurrection, God of the space between, we have walked this Holy Week road before, but never quite like this.

As always, palms are behind us, shouts of “hosanna” ringing in our ears.

As always, we look toward your death with grief, your resurrection with great hope.

As always, you are here with us through it all.

Yes, we have walked this Holy Week road before, but never quite like this.

This year nails will pierce the cross, and we will mourn in our homes rather than in our pews.

This year your body will be placed in the tomb, and we will await word from those faithful women as we shelter in place.

This year, resurrection will come (it always comes) and we will shout “hallelujah,” rejoicing in our living rooms, across computer screens, over conference lines, because this
year, as in every year, you are still with us.

Yes, we have walked this Holy Week road before, but never quite like this.

May we remember, Holy One,
that in every familiar and unfamiliar step, every “hosanna,” every “hallelujah,” every Zoom call and every text, you are with us.

As we walk this Holy Week road remind us--in death, in resurrection, in joy and grief, in the unknown and the liminal space between, you are still our God, and we are still your
people.

Resurrection will indeed come.

Amen.

[03/29/20]   Today's Stewardship Moment:
One of the famous scriptures from the book of Ezekiel is “the valley of dry bones”, Ezekiel 37:1-14. The prophet describes being taken to a valley filled with dry bones. God begins a dialog with the prophet, asking him to prophesy to the bones.
Ezekiel prophesied, and the bones came together. God continued to instruct the prophet, and the bones had sinew, flesh, and skin added to them, until they lived!
Explaining this vision, the people declared they were without hope, “cut off completely”. And yet, God promises to “bring you up from your graves”.
Today, many of us may feel cut off, without hope, dis-connected from other people or separated from God, in the face of the unprecedented economic and health challenges of our day.
Today, I invite you to breathe! Breathe in the presence of God, the capacity of God to work wonders, and the hope which rises in us as we remember the valley of dry bones and its transformation into the multitude standing on their feet, ALIVE!
There are many ways to give: mailing in your check, calling for someone to come by to pick up your offering, bringing it by the church on the days that someone will be there to receive it with donations for outreach, and now through the Givelify application on your phone or computer.
Then, let us respond with thanksgiving, sharing our tithes, our offerings and our gifts, that we may all Come Alive!

Please pray with me
Loving God, so often we experience seasons of being dry bones. Renew in us the image of Ezekiel, prophesying over our lethargy and lifelessness. Let these offerings and gifts be one way of standing on our feet as your living, loving daughters and sons. AMEN

FROM THE PASTOR:
Dear friends,
We find ourselves in unprecedented times. With communities, businesses and churches asked to take extraordinary steps to ensure the public safety, we are doing our best to comply. For you and me here at FCC Duncanville, our choice is now to gather virtually as much as we possibly can. The board met last night via a “zoom call” which allowed some to be present on their computer, some on their smart phone and still others on their landline phones. We determined that this format would be the easiest means to let everyone in the congregation participate in a worship experience this coming Sunday. So, we will open a Zoom meeting for 10:15 Sunday morning so that as many people as possible can join us for worship.
The instructions for getting on zoom will be below. Before the worship time, may I suggest that everyone gather what they would like to use for communion and have that ready so we can share communion together (i.e. cracker and water, bread and juice, even bread and wine!) Obviously, this will be an abbreviated service involving a Call to Worship, a time of prayer, communion, plus a sermon/meditation. As we get a bit more sophisticated, we may be able to work in some additional components such as a solo or special music.
The Thursday morning Bible study will also meet at its regular time tomorrow (via zoom) and those instructions will also be below. The Budget planning meeting will also be meeting via zoom Thursday evening. So, as you can tell we are going to try and maintain as much of our schedules as possible, just through a different venue.
The Elder’s have been encouraged to communicate with their flocks more frequently, but I also encourage everyone else to do the same. As Ron Hundley pointed out last night during our meeting, there is a spiritual need and bond that draw us together to strengthen us, especially in times like these. So - reach out to each other! Someone may need to hear your voice and need your word of encouragement!
It will also be necessary in this interim time to continue to share your tithes and offerings. Many are switching, if they weren’t using it before, to electronic bill payments through their checking accounts. There is no charge for this service through our banks unlike some of the other electronic payment platforms. There is also the idea of putting it in the mail. We will bless the offering received each week in worship like we normally do.
Finally, I am going to ask Sheila to put the prayer disciplines up on the website for any who might now have time or interest in practicing them. I will also put them on Facebook. If you have questions about them, please let me know. Since prayer is our Lenten theme this year, it would now seem to be abundantly clear that our prayers (and safe practices) may influence the COVID-19 to have a shortened life span. May our prayers be stronger and more frequent!

When you join in by Smartphone or Computer It would be helpful to be in a quiet space. Both devices will pick up on all ambient background noise (in a room with the door closed folks could hear my grandson yelling). Please do not shuffle papers or tap on your coffee mug if your mute is off. If you feel the need for side conversation during the Bible study texting would be a good option. Please keep your devices muted until you are ready to speak and afterwards re=mute. For worship, I will have everyone muted until we get to prayer requests and then allow prayer requests to be made before re-muting. Hopefully this will allow for the greatest sound clarity for everyone. For the Bible study, we will allow for individual discretion with the mute buttons. It will also be important to not wander off topic when you are speaking. We have a set time availability on zoom so we will not be able to run over time with either Bible Study or Worship.
I look forward to stepping into this new experiment with you in the coming weeks! And on a side note, this is one of the new areas (the world of social media) that the Epiphany Project pointed to in which we need to have a much stronger presence. Here we are being forced by circumstances to change in that direction. I don’t know if I would call this a God movement, but it certainly feels like Holy Space opening in front of us for us to step through.
Stay safe and be healthy!

In Christ’s service together wherever He leads,
David

Mary: Many of you have noticed me crocheting during worship each Sunday. For the past few years, I’ve been making scarfs for the good people at INCC to hand out in their bags they give to the homeless. Now that we have Bob’s Bags of Love being done by some of our good people, I’m saving them to go out in our own giving this winter. To have 50 scarfs ready for Bob’s Bags by the time it gets cold, I need some help. If you know how to knit or crochet, find your hooks and needles and get busy! If you have spare yarn around your house, please bring it up to the church for others to use. The scarfs don’t have to be pretty or fancy, they just need to help a soul stay warm this winter! We can get this done to help fill Bob’s Bags with more love come winter!

Another one of the many ministries we support at FCC!

Fifty bags of love were distributed to the homeless last Sunday.
