We're In Touch

From 1979 to 1999 when he retired, Hugh Downs closed the ABC 20/20 show with this tagline: "We're in touch, so you be in touch." No doubt Hugh Downs had no idea how many ways would exist today to be in touch. The statistics are staggering: there are 247 billion emails sent each day, 190 million twitter accounts send 65 million tweets a day, 74% of all cell phone users send over 2.5 billion text messages each day. So with all these options thrown at us, what is the best way to be in touch? We are looking in to expanding our options here at Holy Comforter in addition to our website to communicate. The 21st century has so many communication options and many people have a strong preference for one over another. Whether you prefer email, Facebook, evites, or even good old fashioned snail mail, we want you to feel invited and welcomed into our community of faith.
The text, email or tweet does not offer the same feeling of community - being in touch - that your actual physical presence here will provide. It is your presence here that creates community: the children in the Chapel celebrating the Eucharist and praising God with their exuberant singing, the congregation in strong voice singing "Jesus Christ Is Risen Today" on Easter Sunday, the handshake or hug at the sign of peace every Sunday. These are moments that can't be replicated in an electronic exchange.
So however we are in touch with you in the months to come our goal is for you to walk through our doors and be in touch with us in the presence of God's love.
