Pastor's Letter

 
 
September 11, 2015
 
Dear Friends,
Each of us remembers where we were when we heard of the attacks of September 11, 2001.   In acts of hatred and terror people were killed, families devastated, and our lives changed. We were stunned, scared, and angry.   But out of the rubble, came stories of great sacrifice, extraordinary courage, and acts of compassion. In that day and in the weeks, months, years that followed, we've witnessed the capacity of human beings for hatred and evil and for great sacrifice and love. May we always remember and continue to pray for victims and their families.
Maybe it is serendipitous that this month our series is: Experience Healing. We will look at several healing stories of Jesus and discover that "healing" encompasses many dimensions of our being; body, mind, spirit, and relationships. These aspects of our lives are not like separate compartments, walled off from each other. Rather, they are inter-related and co-mingle. This means that the condition of one aspect, influences the other areas in our lives. Jesus' desire is that we find healing and wholeness in our total being. We will reflect on what that looks like and how we move toward that well-being.
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Our Sunday school classes reconvene and our adult small groups will begin their fall offerings.   This Sunday, at both services, we will dedicate teachers and leaders of all classes and discussion groups.
Please continue to pray for God's help and guidance as we seek to reach out to people who do not have a church home, as we help people deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ, and as each of us discovers our passion for serving others, here in the church and out in the community.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Linda
