Letter From the Pastor – March 22, 2020

Many thousands of people, caught in the grasp of some personal tragedy, have said, or least thought: “If God will do so, He can cure me.”  When trouble comes and human solutions fail, most of us think of God.  And our first reaction is the same as that of many people – if God were so inclined, He could solve this problem and set things right. But we are well aware that most personal tragedies do not turn out with a happy ending.  I have known, and so have others, that many people prayed for a deliverance that never came.  […]

Letter From the Pastor – March 15, 2020

          One of the marks of a learned person is that he knows he doesn’t know very much.  Isaac Newton was that kind of a person.  He was one of the major scientific minds of the last 300 years, and yet he once described himself as a small child on the sea shore, picking up a few pebbles, all the while surrounded by a vast ocean of the unknown.  Albert Einstein was like that, also.  In our modern world, his name is a symbol of genius; and yet he said, “The most beautiful thing we can […]

Letter From the Pastor – March 8, 2020

I wonder if many people today really believe that God sees all their circumstances, their cares, and that He wants to provide for them?  So please take me to read Matthew 6:25-33 and Psalm 139. Do you believe that God is your good shepherd, who knows His own, personally and intimately?

So very often when difficult circumstances arise, we rush off to help ourselves and meet our own needs. Many run from God, Our Father, seeking to save themselves. And in so doing […]

Letter From the Pastor – March 1, 2020

A teacher in school asked a ten-year old boy to name three basic food essentials.  And he answered, “Breakfast, lunch and dinner.” Most of us would probably agree with that answer.  We appear to be a well-fed group.  And I would dare say the majority of us eat three good meals a day. Have you ever considered how much of our time is devoted to feeding our bodies?  If we take into account the entire process, it is quite an investment of time.  First, we must earn the money with which to buy food.  Then we must purchase the food, […]

Letter From the Pastor – February 23, 2020

Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and we begin the season of Lent.  It is a time for all of us to stop and to reflect and remember   Do you remember those days when you dreamed beautiful dreams?  You were thinking about the wonderful life that was waiting for your over there in the future.  Dreaming is a vital part of living.  Think how impoverished our world would be without dreamers.  Every great human accomplishment is nothing more than a dream come true.  The electric light was once a dream in the mind of Thomas Edison.  The Fifth Symphony was once a […]
