I am beginning this blog to keep all of at Barton Stone-Mount Hope up-to-date with each other during the our voluntary suspension of Worship Services amid the COVID-19 pandemic. By doing this you can check in whenever you want to see any new info or news without getting your email clogged with “every little thing”. We will save the emails for items that require full and timely distribution to the entire congregation.
In the meantime, I am in self-isolation, officially as of today Don’t panic for me. I have a sore throat and a runny nose, but no fever. I called my doctor’s office and I am not in a situation of having to be tested; but self-isolation is recommended. I am a little tired a couple of times a day, but otherwise well, and so will be working my regular hours – calling people who need checking on, taking calls from people, taking part in on-line meetings, preparing worship and Bible Study materials, etc.
There may be a lag in getting some of this stuff going smoothly (such as on-line meetings), but by the end of the isolation period, we should be pretty good at it.
In the meantime, here is an inspirational poem that about what to do during this time.
