A message from Pastor Duane


 

“When Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things.” -Mark 6:34

Ed Bacon writes in his book, The 8 Habits of Love, “When we are overworked or stressed out, fear breeds like a virus.” Well, it happened to me last week. Cathy, my wife, was COVID positive and dealing with symptoms (thanks for your prayers, we are good). I was tested and found to be negative yet quarantined with Cathy. Even in the midst of practicing these 8 habits: generosity, stillness, truth, candor, play, forgiveness, compassion and community, stress and fear overwhelmed me. Will we ever get back to in-person worship? Will we ever get back to our regular community? Will we get to serve, baptize, and live a life of faith together? These were the questions that ran through my mind.  

It was only when we gathered via Zoom for our new Membership class that I was reconnected to love. Like you, I need to connect with others even if it’s electronically. I need to participate in the work of the Body of Christ; worship, study, service, and fellowship. I know the pandemic is hard. Do the things you need to do that give you life. For me, those things are worship, bible study, running, getting outside, serving, and connecting with others. If you have not made the habit of worship online during the pandemic, I encourage you to begin now. All campus services from multiple weeks are easily and freely accessed on YouTube. Search Cathedral of the Rockies.  

Pray with me: The Light of God surrounds us; the love of God enfolds us; the power of God protects us, the presence of God watches over us; wherever we are, God is! 


Grace and peace,
Rev Dr. Duane A Anders (he, him, his)

P.S. Membership class is open one more week, this Sunday at 4pm. Email cdubert@boisefumc.org to sign up.

Which Way Do We Ghoul? Family Halloween Scavenger Hunt

Saturday, October 31st • 1-3pm • Downtown Campus


This Halloween, we're mixing things up! Wear your costumes and join us for "Witch Way Do We Ghoul?" a Family Scavenger Hunt through the North End.

As a family, you’ll search for answers to tricky, silly questions and riddles that will have you discovering our neighborhood with new eyes! No knowledge of our hunt location is required: only your sharp minds and a good pair of shoes (bikes, scooters, and cars are also welcome). The hunt will take place between 1-3pm and each participating child will receive a safely packed treat bag as a fun and safe alternative to Trick-or-Treating! All families are welcome! Please drop off candy donations to the Downtown Campus.

Contact Hillary if you'd like to help make treat bags, or serve at the event.
