Welcome to Frame Presbyterian - Where Faith Meets Life
Welcome to Frame Memorial Presbyterian Church – we are a midsized congregation in the Presbyterian Church U.S.A., worshipping at the corner of Church Street and Main Street, where Faith meets Life, in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Some of us would describe ourselves as progressive, others would describe ourselves as conservative; but we all would describe ourselves as welcoming, caring, and active in working to share the love of God with the community around us. We are open-minded and openhearted as we try to live faithfully in a changing world.
Ordinary Challenges: Fear and Worry
March 15, 2020
Texts: John 13:33-14:6, 15-18, 25-27
These are not ordinary times. The coronavirus has transformed the world in the last week. I have friends in Namibia, Norway, and the Philippines who all have their children home from school, just as we do here in Stevens Point, WI. The professional sports and entertainment industries have largely shut down, all around the world. People all around the world are working from home…suddenly, all around the world we are all facing the same crisis.
This Lenten series of sermons was intended to be about ordinary challenges that most of us face from time to time, either for ourselves or with people we love. Fear and worry are ordinary challenges, but as I said, these are not normal times, and even more of us are worried or afraid. And not without cause. We may be worrying about our own vulnerability, or afraid for a loved one. We might be worrying about things other than health—such as our jobs or our children’s school experience.
