From Pastor’s Desk

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Most of us use the New Year as an occasion for all kinds of resolutions and resolves. This is our attempt to change and to change for the better. Down deep we all want the best and fullest possible life. That’s really quite a Christian instinct. When Jesus came among us, he identified the reason for his presence. He said in John 10:10 “I have come that you might have life and have it to the full.” We don’t want to settle for anything less than what Jesus offers.
Let me share with you the reflection of a lady as she looked back over life. Perhaps this will help us to have a refreshing attitude towards the new year.

If I had my life to live over…
I would take more chances.
I would take more trips.
I would climb more mountains
And swim more rivers.

I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual troublesbut I’d have fewer imaginary ones.
You see, I’m one of those
people who live sensibly and
sanely hour after hour; day
after day…

I’ve been one of those people
who never go anywhere without
a thermometer, a hot water
bottle, a gargle, a raincoat,
a parachute…

If I had it to do again, I would
travel lighter, much lighter
than I have. I would start
barefoot earlier in the spring
and stay that way later in the
fall.

And I would ride more merry-go-rounds, and catch more golden rings, and greet more people,
and pick more daises, and dance more often…

God loves you, so do I

Andrew

P.S. We want to thank all of you who were so kind to us this past holiday season. We very much appreciate the many cards and gifts we received.
