Letter From the Pastor – January 10, 2021

From the beginning of time, the devil has tried to mislead us.  He often   succeeded.  Adam is the best example, but he seems to be particularly successful in our day and age.  Our permissive age and our consumer society seem to have given into the temptation that it is by bread alone that a human being lives – bread signifying food, pleasure and all that is material.  Many seem to believe that economic well-being is all that matters.  There are many Christians who are more excited by Paradise on Earth than by the Lord’s Kingdom of Heaven.  We often fault […]

Letter From the Pastor – January 3, 2021

It is often said that God works in most unusual ways.  His program has nothing to do with political power or military might.  He doesn’t wave banners or shout slogans or do any of the things calculated to grab headlines. Take for example the gospel account of the meeting of the Blessed Mother with her cousin Elizabeth.  They were both pregnant at the time.  That beautiful story is indicative of the mysterious ways of God.  God’s purpose was to redeem the world.  So where does He start?  Not with a summit conference in Jerusalem or Geneva, nor with the organizing […]

Letter From the Pastor – December 27, 2020

What is God’s intention for families?  What part does God mean families to play in human life?  Only when we understand what God has revealed about the family can we hope to find solutions to the problems families face today. The clearest statement of God’s plan for our family is the one that comes right at the beginning of the Bible in the account of the creation of man.  We often miss the point of this account.  Living as we do in a highly individualistic society; we are used to thinking of humanity as a mass of individuals.  Consequently, we […]

Pastor’s Christmas Message – December 25, 2020

There is a children’s story about a shopkeeper who dreamed one night that Jesus would visit him the next day.  The dream was so real that the shopkeeper believed it was really going to happen.  He got up the next morning fully expecting Jesus to visit him that day in his shop. When he arrived at work, the first item of business was to put the place in order, to clean up, pick up, fix up.  Everything had to be spic and span for the Lord’s visit.  So, he put his salesclerk to work with a broom and a dust […]

Letter From the Pastor – December 20, 2020

                 Have you ever felt the frustration of wanting to say something, but not knowing how to say it?  You have loved someone very deeply, and have sought the words to express that love, but never could find them.  You have shared the sorrow of a friend and have tried to tell him or her how much you cared.  But the words that you spoke did not begin to convey the sympathy that you felt.  Those who are parents have wanted to tell your child something about life something he or she desperately […]
