Snow Days and Community

Snow days used to be something my little family loved: kids put their pjs on backwards with a spoon under their pillow, did a snow dance, and said, “I hope you don’t wake me in the morning, giggle!!”. In the morning they woke up at the same time, of course, and were thrilled to go sledding and drink hot chocolate all day. We have lost count of how many snow days off of school we’ve had this winter, and then we added a church snow day this past Sunday!

I have to admit, snow days from church don’t make me happy. It isn’t just the preparation that goes into creating meaningful worship that I don’t get to share, but I miss seeing my church family! Luckily, Pastor Dave was able to share his sermon via Facebook Live, and hundreds of people viewed it. Friends who live in different states were greeting each other in the comments, and a bit of community was restored.

Although I missed you on Sunday, I am thankful for the quality time I had at the Salem women’s retreat Friday and Saturday, and for the 40+ Salem friends who gathered at the Lenexa Rotary Club Shrimp Fest Saturday night. Be intentional in community this week — let us reach out to each other as we count the days until spring!

In Christ’s love,
Heather Lewis
Director of Music and Worship
