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? And that as our good shepherd He is there to guard, to protect, to make provisions for, and to save from harm? 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 […]

Letter From the Pastor – February 16, 2020

Deep inside of every one of us is a “little voice” that speaks to us about matters of right and wrong.  When we anticipate certain actions, the “little voice” says to us that we ought to do this or we ought not do that.  When life is viewed in retrospect, the “little voice” commends us for some things we have done and condemns us for others.  We, of course, call that “little voice” our conscience. Some people make light of it.  Others define it as “an inner voice which warns us that someone might be looking.”  Some others say, “a […]

Letter From the Pastor – February 9, 2020

The Reader’s Digest, some years ago, told the story of a Jewish rabbi who was counseling a man about the role of money in his life.  First, he took the man to his office    window and asked him to look out and report what he saw.  The man reported that he saw streets filled with people, all sorts of people – young, old, rich, poor, black, white, tall, short.  Most of them seemed in a hurry.  Some of them looked worried and lonely and frightened.  Then the rabbi took the man to a mirror and asked him what he now […]
