What will you do when the pandemic is over? What are you most looking forward to when this is all done?
In my Christmas letter, I told you I had a trip booked to Italy, with a tour starting July 24. I had decided to book it and live in hope, but the hope is beginning to fade. Some of us look forward to travelling, some to seeing family. Often I’ll see Facebook comments that people are excited about being able to hug again - I have to say it will be a long time before I feel comfortable with that. Of course, countless thousands look forward to stable employment or being able to see the ones they love who have been isolated in care homes.
In our worship this Sunday we’ll consider what happens when Jesus heals Simon’s mother-in-law, what she does when she’s able to get out of bed. What Christ invites all of us to do when we can move freely again.
Spoiler alert - it isn’t a trip to Italy. But it does bring new life.
See you Sunday.
