Jesus reminded us of the importance of our need for him and his life giving words when he said, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5 NIV) COVID – 19 doesn’t negate that need.  It enhances it.  Temptations to our faith will be a part of the many challenges that we will address as Christians as we cope with the challenges of the COVID pandemic.
 
The absence of your called pastor and appointed shepherd is another challenge.  Pastor Olsen, our circuit pastor and our chairman, Brian Yerges have begun to address some of those challenges. I have offered input as I am able.
 
Hearing the Word
 
Here are some links that you can use to hear the word via the internet or TV.  We will have to address ways to get sermons to those who do not have access to these resources.  One suggestion is to make regular use of Meditations and Forward in Christ.  It is my hope that we can in some way provide printed sermons to the members of Good Shepherd.
 
The link below is to the live 8:00 a service at St. Paul’s Howards Grove – they will have a small group led by Pastor Mueller.  It is my understanding a recording of that service will be available at the same link after the service is over,

The link below is to the live 9:00 a service at Mt. Olive, Appleton. a recording of that service and other recentservices will be available at the same link after the service is over,

The link below is to St. Andrews in Middleton online worship service from 3/18/2020. It's about 33 minutes and is a nice opportunity to view at home on your computers or smart TVs.

The Lord’s Supper
 
We will be working on ways for the members of Good Shepherd to  receive the Lord’s Supper in the coming weeks.  Perhaps we will be able to set up a time for one of the area pastors to be at Good Shepherd and members could  set up an appointment to attend.
 
OFFERINGSThe Apostle Paul never had to deal with COVID 19.  But he did understand the need for Christians  to support each  other and the Lord’s work. He gave the following advice to the Corinthians.  It’s good advice always but especially relevant now.
 
On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. 1 Corinthians 16:2 NIV
 
Again we will be addressing ways for our members to share their offerings of thanks to support the Lord’s work in the coming week.  Until then I’d urge you to follow the advice above.
 
Finally my friends, know that you are in my prayers as the Lord enables with the strength to lift you up to him in prayer.
 
God's Word Is Our Great Heritage (CW 293)
 
God's Word is our great heritage
And shall be ours forever;
To spread its light from age to age
Shall be our chief endeavor.
Through life it guides our way;
In death it is our stay.
Lord, grant, while worlds endure,
We keep its teachings pure
Throughout all generations.

Psalm 23 NIV

The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
