Desert Trail Column - May 13, 2020

Drive-in Church services will be featured at Godwin Christian Fellowship, 6389 Godwin Road at Highway 62, on Sunday, May 17 at 10 a.m. Sing along and worship in the comfort of your own vehicle! The service will last no longer than one hour. This is a wonderful opportunity to attend church while still following the coronavirus guidelines. For further information, contact Pastor Max Rossi at or 831-234-6848 or Brother Wally Currie at 760-449-8683. 
The USDA Food Distribution will be in a drive-thru format beginning at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 19 at our Wonder Valley Community Center, 80526 ½ Amboy Road at Blower Road. Please wear a face covering and stay in your vehicle. Enter the access road at the east end of the community center and continue driving around the community center in a counterclockwise direction. Someone will come to your vehicle, keeping a safe distance, and ask for your information. Another volunteer will place your box of food into your vehicle at whatever location you indicate. Please be aware that the community center itself is closed and the park is closed, so there are no public restrooms available.
 Karen’s Commentary:  Well, I’m now pretty used to wearing a face mask and keeping my distance from every living soul at the grocery store and doctor’s office. My big concern is that many people are going to hear and read about things beginning to open up and assume we’re suddenly back to normal! I sure hope this doesn’t happen because it could mean a very big setback that would actually prolong all the undesirable rules and regulations of what is right now our everyday lives. I think from now on most of us will be pretty reluctant to get close to strangers or shake hands with everyone or cough or sneeze in public. That is probably a good thing! Since the public guidelines have made such an impression on us, I hope it has also made a big impression in other ways such as pulling together with our fellow humans, no matter where their home is, to make things better for all people everywhere. This whole situation is something none of us has ever been through before and we certainly should contemplate on what each of us has learned from it. I personally am so grateful to still be on this Earth along with my entire family.

 Until next time . . . remember to take time to enjoy the WONDERs all around us.
