COVID-19 Ministry Response

Heavenly Creator, giver of life and health: Comfort
and relieve your sick servants, and give your power
of healing to those who minister to their needs,
that those for whom our prayers are offered may be
strengthened in their weakness and have confidence
in your loving care; through Jesus Christ our Beloved,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

We Are By Ourselves, But Not Alone: Preaching in the Age of COVID-19


Listen to Rev. Dr. Bonnie A. Perry's sermon entitled We Are By Ourselves, But Not Alone:

Preaching in the Age of COVID-19

John 4:5-42

March 15, 2020

Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Detroit

"My friends, in this time, of increasing fear, in this time when it truly is a Christian virtue to put space between us all, it is hard for us not to feel as if we are all alone in this world: unconnected, abandoned, without near enough toilet paper or hand sanitizer, yet I am here to say, that all of the social distancing in the world cannot separate us from Christ Jesus. Just as he crossed the distance of the day, to love and to care for the unnamed woman at the well, he is here for us now.

And though we may be quarantined and only venturing to the well at mid-day when no one is around, We are not alone. I am not alone for here you are listening to me, hearing me, seeing me, missing me, maybe even loving me."
