Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Updates
With updated metrics coming in from Tarrant County and updated guidance from the CDC, First Presbyterian Church has decided to again require masks for everyone on either campus (Penn Street or Hemphill).
We strongly encourage health safety for everyone, and wearing a mask is one thing we can do so that we can all continue doing everything else. These are challenging and rapidly changing times, and we ask for grace, kindness, and respect of each other as we move forward.
We invite you to share in this prayer by Richard Bott, Moderator of the United Church of Canada:
Creator, as I prepare to go into the world, help me to see the sacrament in the wearing of this cloth – let it be “an outward sign of an inward grace” – a tangible and visible way of living love for my neighbours, as I love myself.
Christ, since my lips will be covered, uncover my heart, that people would see my smile in the crinkles around my eyes. Since my voice may be muffled, help me to speak clearly, not only with my words, but with my actions.
Holy Spirit, as the elastic touches my ears, remind me to listen carefully – and full of care – to all those I meet. May this simple piece of cloth be shield and banner, and each breath that it holds, be filled with your love.
In your Name and in that love, I pray. May it be so. May it be so.
