March 23, 2020 - Keep Holding Faith, Together
I wanted you to hear directly from your Second Church family on the heels of today’s announcements by Governor Eric Holcomb and Mayor Joe Hogsett. I want to reiterate, that no matter the news, we are indeed holding faith, together. You can read the Governor’s announcement here. Mayor Hogsett’s statement can be found here.
As part of Governor Holcomb’s address, he specifically mentioned the way Indiana’s faith communities have shown great leadership in these trying times. And we echo that. You, the Body of Christ, have shown that compassion, kindness, love, and prayer are not limited to building, time, or place. You have shown that love is greater than fear and that living faithfully is what we, as people of faith, do. You have led by example. Today’s news does not change any of this – in fact, it only affirms that we must keep leading.
On March 15, I preached a sermon about what we do know. And as I said on that first Sunday of this new reality, these truths hold no matter the circumstance. I share them with you here as a source of stability, comfort, and guidance:
As always, I want you to know that your church is here for you. We are praying along with you and we are embracing the strength of our fellowship. We will continue to stay in close touch and wade through these waters together.
Peace and grace,
Christopher A. Henry
