Letter from the Pastor – April 25, 2021

          I suppose there is no higher compliment that one could pay another person than to call him or her “my friend”. Wrapped up in that simple statement are all of the affection and respect, the trust and loyalty that makes life in this sometimes troubled world both possible and worthwhile. Isn’t it strange that we often take friendship for granted and treat it casually?           The truth is that no human relationship is all that it ought to be until it has been elevated to the level of friendship.

Letter From the Pastor – April 18, 2021
