Letter From the Pastor – February 19, 2017

St. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians that “there are varieties of gifts, varieties of ministries, and  varieties of efforts.”  What he is saying is that unity does not mean sameness.  Such was certainly not the case with the early disciples of Jesus.  There were differences,    disagreements, and disputes among them.  And one of the most beautiful things about the New   Testament is its honesty.  There is no attempt at cover up.  When James and John were arguing over who should have first place in the kingdom of God, the Gospel reports it just as it happened.  When Paul and Barnabas […]

Letter From the Pastor – January 29, 2017

As we know, modern technology has enabled us to take wonderful photos of the human fetus living within his or her mother’s womb.  This is a great help to doctors in their care for the pre-born child.  However, it can also provide some with efficient means to invade this most sacred place – the very womb of a mother – and kill its helpless human inhabitant.  As you may know, every hour about two hundred babies will be aborted in this country alone.  Just take a moment to think about this fact.  That means that about 144,000 babies per month […]
