Darin’s Doodles

October, 2020

Hello everyone! Jesus is asked in Matthew 22 which is the greatest commandment, and he responds with “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”  My family, friends, acquaintances, and even those that may not necessarily agree with me, it is time that we absolutely do what Jesus Christ says in this passage.  Not only do we need to love God with all of our being and never stop doing that, but we MUST love our neighbor as ourselves.  This horrible virus has swept across the country almost like a wildfire and it unfortunately got us.  Philippa and I are just now starting to feel better while Zach was sick for just a day and a half, thankfully.  This virus has claimed over 200,000 people in the U.S. and the number of deaths in Lancaster County is going up along with positive cases.  Yes, people are recovering from it, but we need to do our part to make sure it doesn’t spread and get even worse.  There’s a fine line which I will not and do not want to cross, but we as citizens and more importantly Christians must take to heart caring for one another, as I said in this past Sunday’s worship, sometimes taking care of someone is staying away, staying home, and being safe as possible.  I have no idea when the church building will be open again, but please remember that we are still Christians, God is still there, and we are still Bennet Community Church, because the church is people, you, me and Jesus Christ our Savior, and we can worship, pray, and give thanks anywhere at any time.  Please be safe and take care.  Blessings and love, now and always.
