Annual Sermon: Rev Joseph Williams I am especially looking forward to worshipping the Lord with folks from across our association during the annual meeting. It is more of a challenge than ever just to get together. Covid-19 has impacted so many aspects of life. For most churches it has changed how we worship, how we minister, how missions and outreach are done and how we study and apply the Scriptures to life, just to name a few of the ways. I miss a more regular circuit of visiting churches. Every week I have to check with the pastor of the church I plan to visit. Are they meeting in the sanctuary this week, and is the meeting time changed? We experience a multitude of changes, but the Gospel is still the priority, and we are under unchanged orders from the Lord! May we closely listen to the Holy Spirit as He directs our paths. The theme of our annual meeting, “The Priority of the Gospel,” fits the challenges of these days.                       Darrell
