Messages from the Pastor

My dog can hear me open the refrigerator from three rooms away, so I know that he can hear me when I yell to him from across the yard. Yet, all too often he feigns deafness. Humphrey simply does not have time for me when he is watching the squirrel in the tree, or eating something he found on the ground, or wading in the drainage stream. No matter how loud and persistent I am, he doesn’t seem to notice. . . . .

Living in rural Connecticut, I see a lot of deer – in our yard, in the road, in the woods, in our compost pile. Other people may see them as nuisance animals that eat our gardens and attract ticks, but I see them as beautiful and elegant animals. Even though people have taken over their territory, they manage to survive, as they have for centuries. . . . .

Working from home, I now understand why Humphrey runs to the window anytime he spots movement outside. A squirrel? Better go bark at it. Neighbors walking by? Wonder where they’re going. . . . .

Being a parent is difficult in the best of circumstances. With the current coronavirus crisis, it can be overwhelming! Whenever life is difficult, children need honest information, but providing it on a need-to-know basis may be best. . . . .

You are welcome to join the Prayer Ministry! Let me know if you want to be included in the group that receives prayer requests, and I will happily add you. The more people praying right now, the better! If you have any prayer requests, please let me know.
Feel free to send your pledges to church, either in the mail or by using the tithe.ly app. Even with the “stay at home” order, our wonderful Finance Committee is still making deposits and paying bills to keep NGCC afloat financially.
