Pastor’s Christmas Message – December 25, 2020

There is a children’s story about a shopkeeper who dreamed one night that Jesus would visit him the next day.  The dream was so real that the shopkeeper believed it was really going to happen.  He got up the next morning fully expecting Jesus to visit him that day in his shop. When he arrived at work, the first item of business was to put the place in order, to clean up, pick up, fix up.  Everything had to be spic and span for the Lord’s visit.  So, he put his salesclerk to work with a broom and a dust […]

Letter From the Pastor – December 20, 2020

                 Have you ever felt the frustration of wanting to say something, but not knowing how to say it?  You have loved someone very deeply, and have sought the words to express that love, but never could find them.  You have shared the sorrow of a friend and have tried to tell him or her how much you cared.  But the words that you spoke did not begin to convey the sympathy that you felt.  Those who are parents have wanted to tell your child something about life something he or she desperately […]

One of life’s most wonderful blessings is the gift of sleep.  If you doubt that, talk to some person who suffers from chronic insomnia.  They dread going to bed for fear of  being unable to sleep.  They toss and turn throughout the night.  They get up the next morning, exhausted and frustrated by their inability to sleep. Too much sleep is almost as detrimental as too little.  The person who constantly wants to sleep is either physically sick or emotionally depressed, or is just plain bored with life.  The story of Rip Van Winkle is an American legend about a […]

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 […]
