Pastor's Devotion, March 26, 2020


“Owe no one anything except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law” Romans 13:8

     I come from a long line of “huggers.” When we see someone we care for, we instinctively touch, cheek kiss, back slap, shoulder hug, or handshake. In our family reunion pictures, you will find us bunched up with arms around those next to us.

     Now we must find other ways to express our caring. Yes, we reach out with telephone calls, emails, Facebook posts, etc, but the most important thing we can do is stay well. The pandemic makes us caregivers to everyone we are close to. If I expose myself to the virus, I expose everyone I love. I must remind myself that if I come in contact with an individual, I am actually in contact with everyone that person has touched for the previous fourteen days.

     I am also a caregiver to those professional caregivers who are spending their days swathed in gowns, masks, and gloves surrounded by the virus. The most loving thing I can do for them is show my gratitude for their sacrifice by staying well.

     Paul’s words to the Romans remind us of the primacy of the love we bear each other in Christ. It is the begin all, end all, of our faith. I believe we are being called to learn a new kind of love in these days. We are all caregivers for Christ.

           (Selected Paragraphs From A Pastoral letter)           

"As followers of Christ, we are not called to dwell on our fears but to respond in faith. Paul promises us, “love casts out fear”. We overcome fear by acting in some positive way to express our love for others. We refuse to be afraid when we dwell on God’s promises in scripture and his promises fulfilled in our own past experiences. God has not deserted us but has drawn closer to us in our time of trial.

I will say to you what I have always told my children, I love each of you’re the best and the most!”

Dear YPPC,

Last year, the session began looking into ways to modernize our church financial
system. We now have members who prefer to give by bank draft or credit card instead of mailing their gift or putting it in the plate. The budget and finance committee have finished their work and are ready to offer these options to the church. Please see below for the details.

The committee’s work now seems providential in light of the current pandemic. It may be several months before we are able to again worship together the way we always have. In the meantime, it is vital that we continue to support the church financially. I know there are some of our members who are going to struggle economically to get through this hard time. That makes it all the more important for those of us less affected to keep our pledges up to date. These new gift-giving options will help in that regard.

Sometimes God calls us to live up to the faith we proclaim. I believe this is one of those times. When the normal comforts and protections are removed, then we must act on those beliefs that are most firmly held. These are the days when we are called to live bravely in the midst of trouble, confident that God will not desert us. The One who has always been our shield and defender will see us through.

May the Lord bless you and keep you...

Dr. Chip

and then entering your information.  You can donate to YPPC using a debit or
credit card. It is important to note that there is a 2% fee charged to the church
for using Giveplus+ and they give you the option to absorb that fee.  Contact the Session Secretary if you have questions.
