Letter From the Pastor – November 29, 2020

A clerk in a small town store said to the pastor, “I know she is a member of your Church, but she is the most difficult person to wait on when she comes into my store.”  A traveling salesman said, “I know he is on your committee and so far as I know, he is honest, but in the business world it would be easier to get along with the devil.” Make no mistake, a bad disposition is a tragic curse in any life.  Have you ever stopped to consider that the sins of the spirit can negate your Christian […]

Letter From the Pastor – November 22, 2020

Let me ask this question, and try to answer it honestly:  Who or what is the most important thing in your life?  That is not an easy question to answer.  Our lives are involved with so many things and include so many things that it is difficult to isolate just one as central and supreme.  But someone or something is.  All our lives are organized into a hierarchy of commitments and concerns, and at the top sits one supreme thing or person to which we subordinate and would even sacrifice all the rest. For some people that person or thing […]

We all have horns and halos, strengths and weaknesses.  We are both good and bad.  All men of insight have felt this same conflict within themselves.  St. Paul wrote, “It […]

Letter From the Pastor – November 8, 2020

It seems that every person shares or has shared dreams of a future of peace and tranquility.  We are all sick of the insanity of war and terrorism.  We are exhausted by man’s inhumanity to man.  We are tired of crime and violence.  We are fed up with greed and injustice.  We long for a world of peace and righteousness, where people and  nations settle their differences through cooperation instead of conflict.  But many, I fear, have recently stopped believing that such a world is possible.  Many more are deeply discouraged.  Though still believing in a better world, they feel […]

Letter From the Pastor – November 1, 2020

                It seems to me that our church, in the beginning years of the 21st century, has a golden opportunity to make the gospel real and relevant to a world that is weary of wars, weary of manipulation, weary of emptiness, and increasingly weary of moral degradation.  It is a time when we should prepare ourselves to be the church at its best.  We must remind ourselves that the world is ready now for the message of God, delivered by people like ourselves, who demonstrate that message in their own lives.                 During […]
