Pastoral Letter from The Rev. Rilla Barrett

Christ Episcopal Church, 382 Boblett St., Blaine, WA USA

Christ Episcopal Church is an affirming and inclusive Christian community. Our members and leaders strive through love, worship and service to welcome all people just as God created them. No matter where you are on your journey of faith, our welcome knows no boundaries of age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, or economic condition. We believe that God delights in the diversity of creation and so do we.

Dear Friends,

The events in our nation in the last week (along with the overall divisiveness for some time) may leave us feeling unsettled and worried.  With out president so very ill and now hospitalized, it can leave us feeling anxious.  If you’d like to talk or to pray, please contact me at 360.770.8061 or rbarrett@wavecable.com.  I can also put you in touch with Jo or Terry if you’d like to talk to them.  

I’d also like to encourage you to pray for President Trump and the First Lady and for all those who are suffering from CoViD19.  Lastly, I commend to your reading the following statement and prayer from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.  

Peace and good,

Rilla+

A Message From Presiding Bishop Curry released yesterday. . . 

During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic I continue to pray for all affected by this virus in any way.   At this particular moment I ask that all Episcopalians also pray for the President and First Lady, and all in the White House or Government who have been infected by this virus.

O God of heavenly powers, by the might of your command you drive away from our bodies all sickness and all infirmity: Be present in your goodness with your children, the President and First Lady, and all in the White House or Government who have been infected by this virus, that their weakness may be banished and their strength restored; and that, their health being renewed, they may bless your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

     - For Recovery from Sickness, Book of Common Prayer, p. 458
