It is saddening to be unable to check in on loved ones who are homebound, especially those in nursing homes and assisted and independent living communities. Please find creative ways to check in with them if possible—phone calls and cards can be done by anyone. And, if a neighbor or other person you know is in need and can’t get out to get essentials, please offer to go the store for them if you are not an at-risk individual. Please let the Pastor know of their need if you are unable to help that person.
For children there is “Morning Watch—Kids!” on YouTube. It is done by two Greensboro Lutheran pastors with help from some of their friends. It is a light-hearted devotion with puppets and songs for young ones (there is also “Morning Watch”, a short devotional for adults).
APPRECIATION - Kenneth and Edna May want Low’s to know how much they appreciate listening to the chimes from their front Porch.
