Weekly Update
June 9, 2021

Greetings, CHLC family and friends,

This coming Sunday, June 13, is the Third Sunday after Pentecost. Weather permitting, we will gather outside, on the east parking lot for our service, so remember to bring your own chair if you wish! As always, metal chairs will be available for those who need them. I am hoping that the weather cooperates since the scripture has to do with trees and bushes and creation! It will be a wonderful setting.

Our Christian brother, Jim Frashier, continues to transition from this earthly life to eternal life, and we pray that he and his family know and experience the presence of the Good Shepherd walking through this dark valley with them. As soon as I hear any news of his passing and of arrangements, I will share them with you all.

Lucy and I will be heading to Colorado for vacation from June 14-24. This is a "reschedule" of a trip we were supposed to make last year to officiate at a wedding on the top of Mt. Vail which was relocated to Mirror Lake because of Covid19 (sorry, Holly and Travis). It is also an early 30th Wedding Anniversary trip. Our anniversary is August 10. We will visit with friends we have who now live in the northern part of Denver and in Ft. Collins and explore some of the sights like the Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park, Colorado Springs and Pike's Peak and other local attractions.

On June 20, The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, Pastor Cindy Hershberger will be preaching and presiding in my place. We have gotten to know Cindy this last year as she has returned to Columbus and has become active again with Clinton Heights. We pray for her as well as she will be leaving us toward the end of July to participate in a hospital chaplaincy program outside of Tampa, Florida..
The service on June 20 will be indoor, and will be live-streamed on Facebook and shared by video upload as usual. The video might not be ready as quickly as usual, but it will be emailed out.

I will see you in worship!
