“If it’s your turn, step up to the plate. Take the bull by the horns. Put a bell on that cat. In that moment you may feel alone, but you are not. The communion of saints is behind you. The people who love you surround you and the Spirit of the Lord is upon you because God has anointed you for this.”
Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde preached on Sunday, reminding us that God has given us the confidence and strength to do more during these stressful times.
