Since March, clergy have been stretched to the limit to provide compassionate pastoral care and meaningful worship experiences in an online or virtual setting while the State of Illinois is under a Stay-at-Home Order.
Recognizing the stress felt by many NIC clergy, Bishop Sally Dyck announced a Three-Day Sabbath for all clergy to replenish body, mind, spirit and relationships. In order to allow clergy to step away for this sanctioned time off, Bishop Dyck and Cabinet, together with the NIC Communications Department, collaborated to produce this worship service video.
We pray all NIC congregations are blessed by this service and find it meaningful. Most of all, we pray for the healing of our congregations, our State, and our country.
“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” 3 John 1:2
