Pastor's Letter

 
 
September 4, 2015
 
Dear Friends,
Have you ever said something and realized that as soon as the words left your mouth you regretted saying them? In that situation, wouldn't it be nice if you could grab those words before they were heard, and pull them back into your mouth?  
This Sunday we will wrap up the series: Lessons from James, with a reflection on the power of words. Words have the power to hurt or to heal; they can offer hope or foster despair. How does our faith help shape the words we say?    
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Our worship services will be more casual. Please continue to pray for the ministries at Buckhall and how God is calling you to serve. Many of our ministries are gearing up for the rhythm that comes with fall and your help is needed.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Linda
