Round 2 of CCPC19 and Worship on the Corner of Lincoln and Main


(John 3:19-21)


Round 2 of CCPC19 and Worship on the Corner of Lincoln and Main


Here's what we know and don't know about CCPC19.

It's unprecedented, fluid and incrementally unfolding with diametrically opposed experts on its magnitude and duration.

I keep thinking of the bureaucrat that scolded me for never cancelling worship with her trump card being she is following the science.

I asked, "Which one?"

She said, "The right one!"

Uh, O.K.

In other words, no one knows what the anything but heaven is going on.

Frankly, or Shirley if you prefer, I've still got academicia in my noodle despite Paul's 1 Corinthians 1 counsel; searching for intersecting truth from diverse and often contradictory sources via newsfeeds from CNN, Fox, Newsmax, the major networks, rags like the NYT, WP, WE, CT and even the RRS.  When they agree, I think I've found  truth.  When they disagree, I think I've found opinion.

In other words, nobody really knows what's going on and and so there's been no consistency when it comes to appropriate antidotal deportment.

Of course, that hasn't stopped know-it-alls from the left, right, up and down and all around from pretending they know-it-all as they move into the intensifying mask, vax and keeping-each-other-at-arms-length wars.

It reminds me of Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Baptists, MSLs, RCs and other religious bigots that have cut Matthew 15 and 23 out of their Bibles discussing who's "more saved" with any connection to what Jesus said being coincidental with a Methodist playing mediator.

That's why I refuse to get into tinkling contests with the know-it-alls because I don't know-it-all as I focus on worship in gratitude and evangelism in mercy.

I don't know who's "more right" on this and I don't trust a lot of the players (scroll down or keep reading til ya get there).

So I'm gonna stick to what I know for sure in a John 3 and 14 kinda way.

Simply, if you want to stand strong, stand with Jesus!


We never cancelled worship on the Corner of Lincoln and Main.

We never locked down.

We never cowered in fear with Psalm 20 and 1 John 4 in mind.

It was never on our radar to cancel or lock down.

Jesus is Lord not Caesar on the Corner of Lincoln and Main.

Read Exodus 20:1-8, Isaiah 58:13-14, Acts 5:29 and Hebrews 10:19-25.


Now that those mask, vax and keeping-each-other-at-arms-length wars are heating up again, we will keep on keepin' on and not cancel worship or lock down.

The office will remain open.

That's a personal choice by our administrative assistant et moi.

We wear big girl and boy pants.

We know the risks of not knowing the risks and have decided we will serve above self because we're trying to follow the One that we say is Lord and Savior.

For over a year and a half, we haven't told anybody what to do and we're not about to start now.

We are just going to be available to people who need/want/expect us to be available.

Personal Note.

How can I trust people that enable or wink at killing babies to be concerned about my health?

How can I trust people that lied about the origin of CCPC19?

How can I trust people that don't have God on their radar and make decisions apart from Jesus by the book as their foundation, focus and filter?

How can I trust people that want to limit the world's population to under 500 M?

How can I trust people that abandon evil's prey in Vietnam, Afghanistan and...?

I mean, really, can you trust those kinda people with your life?

BTW, if you're curious, I'm fine.

I'm protected.

Unless I'm sick or something with more than the sniffles or head cold or another cyst or something that can't be handled by Advil, B&B or Drs Dwight and Steve, I'm not going to be tested.  


I mean if I'm not sick, why would I be tested?

To add another stroke to the tally to rationalize whatever is being rationalized?


We never cancelled worship.

We never locked down.

We never sued to stay open.

We didn't fight with anyone.

We're not going to fight with anyone.

We ignored 'em and we'll ignore 'em if they...

If you want to stand strong, stand with Jesus!

Blessings and Love!
