Message from Bishop – Prayers 10.2.20

Dear Friends in Christ,

Today I call each of us to pray for our President, the First Family and all who are infected with COVID-19. This is a sad and troubling time in our nation and the world.

COVID-19 has disrupted and changed our lives forever, but I continue to give thanks to God for GNJ’s clergy and congregational leadership who continue to make safety and human life a high priority. Thank you for all you are doing.

Let us pray for the President’s recovery and those who are affected with him. Let us continue to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and maintain social distancing practices. Let us seek and work toward the healing of our nation and world.

Keep the Faith!
