Letter From the Pastor – July 9, 2023

               A poster from the 1960’s offered an excellent commentary on human nature.  Two babies in diapers about the same age sat facing each other.  One was reaching out to the other as though to establish contact.  The caption underneath said, “At last I have found someone exactly like me.”  One of the babies was black; the other was white.  That strikes me as an interesting comment on the similarity and dissimilarity in human beings.  Sometimes we get to thinking that our needs and problems are unique to us, that no one else in […]

Then we come to […]

Letter From the Pastor – June 18, 2023

One of the most heated debates these days concerns the use of the death  penalty.  One side is for it; the other side is against it.  One says it is moral; the other says it is immoral.  One says it serves as an effective deterrent to crime; the other says it does not.  And even among those who favor its use, there are areas of discussion and disagreement.  To what crimes should it apply?  What should be the age limit?  What method should be used? The debate goes on.  The questions are many.  The answers are few. As we all […]
