Living in the Moment from Margaret DiPinto, Director of Operations at CHT
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. –Isaiah 40:31
I am not a very patient soul, and this time of pandemic has sorely tested me. I am a hands on, results oriented person and once I undertake a project whether it be in the work place or in my private life, I am totally focused on seeing it completed, effectively and efficiently. It is an understatement to say that it has been difficult to live in this new moment so full of uncertainty and disruptive of my normal routine, and I now realize just how much I loved that routine, and how I miss it. So, it seems to me that this biblical quote has never made more sense.
But, I ask myself, how do we wait upon the Lord? That is the question of the present moment. Part of the answer might be by additional prayer on a regular basis, and for me part of my prayer must be asking the Lord to teach me how to wait ………. To learn how to live in the moment; to be grateful for the things I have, and not so focused on what I am missing.
So I pray, teach me Lord to wait upon You ……….. Show me the way and calm my fears and anxiety. Remind me of your great mercies and loving care for your creation, and help me to put my trust in You which will give me strength and confidence that if I do so, all will be well.

Mindful Moment with the Reverend Rachel Gardner: Listening to each other.
The sin of racism teaches us that our fellow humans are not like us, but are other, and often less. But our faith tells us that we are all created by and children of God, and brothers and sisters through Christ. Healing this sin will take time to connect with others who are not like us and to listen to their stories and experiences with compassion and love (the same compassion and love God has for each of us). The Just Listening Project was started by Toussaint Bailey, the CEO of Enso Wealth Management with the purpose of helping to heal anti-black racism through sharing and feeling the personal experiences of colleagues and friends who are people of color. Here is Mr. Bailey’s story: https://youtu.be/wefR-jVDUaA. We invite you to hear his story, and to invite other stories into your life this week.

Virtual Worship here at CHT!
Since the stay at home order in March we have been worshiping from home, but we have found ways to be together in spirit and share our faith with one another. Here is a glimpse of what it looks like on the other side of virtual worship from The Lipscomb Family – “a crowded pew on Sunday morning!!”. If you have a picture or video of your virtual worship you’d like to share please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
