Pastoral Perspective
"But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God,"--John 1:12, ESV

As we move towards Easter, with the presence of Christ in our hearts, let us remember to receive others, as Christ has also received us to the glory of God (Romans 15:7, KJV).

Grace & Peace,
Pastor Tim
