Rev. Lee Anderson-Harris, Minister of Care

“In all situations, the God who was incarnate in Jesus Christ is already there, through the power of the Holy Spirit. We don’t have to urge God to be present; Jesus promised to be with us always (Matt 28:20). When we talk about the intersection of daily life and Christian faith, or the overlap of the ordinary and the non-ordinary, we are simply acknowledging that while God is present in all of life,often we find it difficult to perceive God’s presence and need help to do so.” –Lynne M. Baab

“Caregivers wonder, ‘What shall I say?’ ‘What can I do?’ Yet these questions are secondary to our being a presence, a reminder of the Presence of God in Jesus Christ, that sufferers are not alone.We are sharers with them of their burdens as we fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2). Our own self-awareness of this ‘being with’ them prompts us to give thanks that neither they nor we are alone; thePresence of God is with us, bearing the pain, agony and desolation with us.” –Wayne Oates
