SONGS OF THE SICKNESS!

Dear Crosswalkers,
 
Our COVID-19 saga continues!
 
Here are some songs for your playlist during this time of social distancing and avoiding the coronavirus:
 
~ So Far Away, by Carole King
~ Alone Again (Naturally), Gilbert O'Sullivan
~ Gimme Shelter, Rolling Stones
~ All By Myself, Eric Carmen
~ In My Room, Beach Boys
~ Fever, Peggy Lee
~ Take My Breath Away, Berlin
~ The Cure, Lady Gaga
~ Stayin' Alive, Bee Gees
~ I Will Survive, Gloria Gaynor
 
In Christian music, some of the old hymns of the faith are just NOT appropriate during this pandemic:

~ We Gather Together
~ Just a Closer Walk With Thee
~ Breathe on me, Breath of God
 
Some are more acceptable:

~ Jesus Walked This Lonesome Valley
~ I Come To The Garden Alone
 

WHEN WILL CROSSWALK REOPEN FOR SERVICES?

We are always planning to reopen at the earliest possible opportunity, when safe! Shelter-in-place orders continue through the month of May for Santa Clara county, which gave us hope or reopening on Sunday, June 7. Then yesterday our Governor released the four stages of reopening businesses and community events:
Stage 1: Safety and preparedness (Now)
Stage 2: Lower-risk workplaces (Within Weeks)
Stage 3: Higher-risk workplaces (Months away)
  • Use restrictions on gathering sizes and other limits to reopen higher-risk workplaces
    • Salons and gyms reopen with restrictions
    • Sports (without live audiences) and movie theaters
    • Religious services return to in-person settings
Stage 4: End of stay-at-home order
 
It was disheartening to see us listed as months away. Sigh.

Stir crazy, here I come!
 
So we will continue to pray for the Lord's guidance and seek the Lord’s healing, grace, and power; and we will continue to improve our online ministries.
 
Please, let us strive to stay connected to each other!
 
This weekend we will continue our YOU TUBE CHANNEL worship service with a message from Ephesians 5:15-21. The message is called “How to be Filled with the Holy Spirit.”

As is our tradition during the first Sunday of the month, we will be celebrating the LORD’S SUPPER during this service, so please have your own communion elements on hand, the bread and the cup.
 
Also, if you would like to share a testimony of the Holy Spirit’s work in your life, just LET US KNOW!
 
Many blessings,
Pastor John
