From the Pastor
Rev. Steve Ramsdell
 

"Purpose can be a compelling thing in life. Jesus had a purpose. His purpose was to accomplish the Father's purpose and he knew his Heavenly Father would not turn him loose no matter how dark and dangerous the days might become. His disciples might not understand, others might oppose him, but he purposefuly pursued his fathers will. Nothing derailed him. Whatever the difficulties.... he knew his purpose and he knew his heavenly Father had a firm grip on him and his pupose.  He looked beyond the stormy seas and days to see the vision of the future that included God's redemption of men and women like you and me. Love for the  Father and love for us compelled him. What compels you? "...   Continue
