Letter From the Pastor – May 7, 2023

                The early Church fathers compiled a list of what they called “the seven deadly sins.”  Number one on that list was the sin of pride.  I doubt that you and I would have done it that way.  We may recognize that pride is indeed a sin, but most of us would not think of it as the first and worst of the deadly sins.  I can think of at least three sins that most of us consider to be more serious than the sin of pride – murder, adultery, and stealing.                 And is there not a sense in […]

Letter From the Pastor – April 9, 2023

Today is Easter Sunday.  It is a day in which the message of Easter tells us:  Don’t give up; don’t quit; don’t throw in the towel.  This life is not all that there is.  Stay tuned.  There is much more to come. You and I need that message, probably more than we know.  I suspect that this is the reason more people return to the Church on Easter than any other day of the year.  Somehow, we know that human life cannot find its total expression within the limits of time.  Everything here, everything around us and within us cries […]
