Pastor Patricia’s Pauses

June 2020

Well, it has been a whole year since I first met the people called Methodists in Douglas, WY! Who could have predicted the way the year would go? As I pause to think about where we have been as a congregation I’m blessed with many happy memories.

First, there was last summer. I was just getting to meet you and get to understand how you all do a Sunday worship. I know that I changed a few things and I’m hoping that those changes brought us closer together as a community of faith. I remember being so very nervous the first few times I got up and preached. Was I doing it right? Would you all stop and think about some things? Would I be challenging to you? I hope so anyway…

Then, we got settled into our routine in the Fall of 2019. Each Sunday was a joy for me and hopefully for you as well. I particularly liked the Community Meals that I attended on Wednesday. It was during those times that I felt like I started to get to know you better individually. I also loved playing my flute on those occasional Sundays and singing with the choir. We certainly know how to make a joyful noise, right?

The craft fair that United Methodist Women put on was so much fun as well! Who knew that there was so much talent among the people of our congregation? That Saturday went by so fast! I look forward to this year with great anticipation!

And then there was Christmas Eve Service. It was just beautiful. By then I felt really at home and was so happy that my family could celebrate this special day with your families.

By mid-March, Covid-19 hit. I certainly didn’t expect that to happen! And we were all called upon to think of church a bit differently. I pray for all of you every day – especially our vulnerable older folks – that they don’t catch the virus. I don’t’ know when we will return to “normal” but when we do, I’m sure we will all be ready to worship together once again.

Until then, please know that even though I don’t see you physically each week, I am praying for you and your families. If there is ever anything you need, please do not hesitate to reach out. I’m looking forward to us being able to gather again in person, but until then, may God’s peace be with you all!
