From the Pastor
Rev. Steve Ramsdell
"Jesus frequently found Himself in conflict with the religious and political leaders of His day. When He ignored or replaced their teachings and traditions, they bristled, challenging His right to make change.  They challenged his authority to ignore their rules and traditions.  They asked him why he believed he was bigger than the law.  "By what authority?" was their common rebuke.  Whose authority do you have that is more important or bigger than ours?  As you set your sights on living like Jesus... let God-confidence strengthen you. Do what is right in the eyes of God, regardless of opposition.  The book of Kings said that the big sin in those days was that people kept doing what was right in their own eyes.  That way of living created constant conflict and pain.  Do what is right in the eyes of God, creates something entirely different as we life a life that brings the Kingdom of God that is up there, down here."... Continue
