Vicar's Word 張牧師的話
It is very difficult for me to announce here that all the in-person worship services and all non-essential meetings have been temporarily suspended at St. Thomas' until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak. This decision is to protect the physical health of our brothers and sisters, especially those above 65 or with a serious underlying health condition (see The President's Coronavirus Guidelines for America).
Amid such a virus crisis, I would especially like to remind you to begin and end each day with the Word of God and a prayer for yourself and those you’re concerned about. This will enable you to align your heart with the heart of our Lord Jesus to avoid being easily distracted or worried by the ongoing turmoil. Meanwhile, keep yourself connected with your sisters and brothers in Christ through prayers, encouraging words by phone/text/email, and continue to look out for one another's wellness by following the guidelines from CDC or other government agencies.
May this time of chaos be turned into a great opportunity for us to walk closer with the Lord daily for His presence, wisdom and comfort!
