The Session has reconsidered opening the church for in-person services this Lord’s Day, March 21, 2021. With the rising numbers of Covid-19 in Toronto and the potential return to full lockdown, it was thought better to continue with “online” services ONLY, out of an abundance of caution.
I know you were looking forward to getting back to the Lord’s house, but if we open and then have to shut again in a few weeks, that can be more unsettling.
Thank you for your faithful praying, and be encouraged that the Lord is in control of all things and He knows the way that we take.
“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?” Matthew 6:30
Clothes are expensive, and poor believers may be led into anxiety as to where their next suit will come from. The soles are thin; how shall we get new shoes? See how our thoughtful LORD has provided against this care. Our heavenly Father clothes the grass of the field with a splendour such as Solomon could not equal: will He not clothe His own children? We are sure He will. There may be many a patch and a darn, but raiment we shall have.
A poor minister found his clothes nearly threadbare and so far gone that they would hardly hold together, but as a servant of the LORD, he expected his Master to find him his livery. It so happened that the writer on a visit to a friend had the loan of the good man’s pulpit, and it came into his mind to make a collection for him, and there was his suit. Many other cases we have seen in which those who had served the LORD have found Him considerate of their wardrobe. He who made man so that when he had sinned, he needed garments, also in mercy supplied him with them; and those which the LORD gave to our first parents were far better than those they made for themselves. – C.H.
