Metsku news w. 17

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her”
– Gospel of Luke 10:41-42

Hopefully you have had a blessed week and enjoyed the wonderful spring weather! The flowers that are in bloom and the songs of the birds remind us that not all changes are for the worse, some changes bring good things with them. We continue to gather in our homes for Sunday services, and in the same time we look forward to when we with caution can start gathering together as before again. Remember to extend the grace of God both to yourself and those around you in this time, the restrictions that we live with may affect us in ways that are hard to pinpoint. Rest in God’s love, remember to take a moment of prayer and Scripture every day, if possible.

Help each other
We in the Methodist Church would like to help as we stand together in these times of the corona pandemic. We believe that it is important to help each other as best we can. If you or somebody that you know is in the risk group, is older or a family with children we want to coordinate practical help for you. Please let us know if you need help with shopping, getting medicine from the pharmacy or any other form of practical help! We will of course follow the given guidelines and minimize risks (for example not being directly in contact with others).  Thank you to all who have already contacted us! Please e-mail

If you are looking for a way to help others – please let us know if you would be able to do the shopping or other practical tasks for somebody who currently is not able to do it. We will provide instructions on what to think about during the errands, in order to minimize risks. Please e-mail and mention in your e-mail whether you have access to using a car or not.
