Letter From the Pastor – March 25, 2018

Today is Palm Sunday, 2018.  This week started with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and ended with his tragic death on Calvary.   In a sense, it is very strange that this week should be called holy.  As we walked through it, unfolding before our eyes was a scene of deception and dishonor, betrayal and denial, political expedience and religious corruption, all of which culminated in the greatest crime of history.  Judged by the scenery, this could easily be called Hell Week.  But the strength and courage of one man took those seven days of shame and transformed them into […]

Letter From the Pastor – February 18, 2018

            Does it appear to you that all of us are embroiled in that ongoing conflict between the old and the new?  Sometimes it seems that nothing ever stays the same.  Everything around us is in a constant state of transition.  The world is changing; our community changes; our home changes; the Church changes; even we, ourselves, change.  If you don’t believe that, well, go dig out an old high school or college picture.  Take a look at yourself then and compare it with the way you look now.             Change is a fact of […]
