Message from Our Senior Minister
Grace and Peace be unto you,
Your life is a gift from God! You only have this one life to live whether from one or many geographical areas, while simultaneously navigating our political, economic, and health systems. One of the keys of navigating is not allowing your disappointments, illnesses, and aging (to name a few) to wound you to the degree that you do not enjoy the gift of life.
Remember you are a gift from God so praise God with your life, as noted (excerpts) in Psalm 40:4-5 (The Message Bible), “Blessed are you who give yourselves over to God, turn your back on the world’s “sure things,” ignore what the world worships; …nothing and no one comes close to YOU! I start talking about you, telling what I know, and quickly run out of words. Neither numbers nor words account for you.” Remember – YOU ARE A GIFT FROM GOD!
