84:2 My soul longs, yes, faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.
84:3 Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God.

    • During the month of May we’d like to encourage you to do various personal outreaches to bless other people with practical acts of love. When we planned this, we were hoping for practical blessings of mowing someone’s lawn, taking flowers to them, inviting someone over for a meal, etc. Sadly under COVID-19 lockdown, we’ll have to be much wiser on how to bless other people. If you have some great ideas how we can bless people during COVID-19, let Carel-J know and he will share the ideas with the church.

May the LORD bless you
