The past year and a half has taken a great toll on our strength and our spirits. Before most Americans understood what COVID-19 was all about, our community was already experiencing — with fear and trembling — just how terrible an adversary this virus can be. More recently, our area incurred heavy losses in the flood waters of Ida, with many families displaced from their homes and countless others left to haul wet furniture, clothing, and ruined valuables out to the street. Today, many of us have empty chairs at our tables, having lost loved ones to the pandemic. Others have lost jobs and income. All of us has missed the restorative blessings of family and friends. Even as we begin the slow return to some familiar patterns, many people continue to report chronic symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, and frustration. With all that has happened, we are still carrying a heavy burden of grief.
In times like these, we are reminded of our need for divine support, assurance, and the kind of healing that only God can provide. At 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 24th, in Larchmont’s Constitution Park, Larchmont Avenue Church invites our entire community to join us for a time for scriptural assurance, prayer, and the invocation of God’s healing touch. Together, we will name our grief and try our best to lay our burdens down, knowing that in our weakness the Lord can be our strength. We hope to see you there.
