Chaplain offers seniors “Easter worship on wheels”

I am a Deacon appointed to Chalfont UMC, and I serve as a chaplain at The Willows of Living Branches in Hatfield, PA. My residents are confined to their rooms. So I created this altar on a cart with wheels. 
 
Underneath the altar is a speaker and microphone that connects to my phone using Bluetooth. I was able to wheel my altar around the building sharing an Easter message and singing Resurrection hymns.  
By the end of the morning, I found my heart to be full while physically exhausted! All the Easter “extras” were removed, and all that was left was worship-focused on sharing the Good News.  
 
My residents could not be with their families, but we could worship “together” as a community, as a family of believers. They expressed gratitude that we were able to worship this way because they had feared that they would be completely alone on this day that typically includes large family and worship gatherings.
