June – time to clean up the cottage, put the boat in the water, mow the lawn. Summer on the Point can’t be beat. If only summer would never end!
Living full time on the Point sounds heavenly, but it can be very different. Endlessly gray, chilly winter empties out entire neighborhoods; business drops significantly, work hours go downhill, as does the income. Without a strong connection to the community, the “off the grid” ambience of the Point can be isolating.
I don’t know if the tragic events of late May, resulting in the loss of three lives, were part of this malaise, but they should open our eyes to this reality: the Point’s unique location and character are appealing to people who appreciate a simple lifestyle and a certain amount of privacy, but it isn’t for everyone. It can meet a lot of needs but, as one of my children said, “It’s a great place to go, if you want to disappear.”
The Trinity Church family holds the family and friends of these three people in constant prayer and concern. Let’s own the take-away here: a more diligent watchfulness, more intentional connectivity, more understanding and caring concern. In short, let’s explore new and better ways to love one another!
You should know, the church has a web page! Go to pointrobertschurch.com for information on church programs, concerts and more. Listen to Sunday sermons too!
