Follow Jesus, Love Others, Share Hope
"Thank You and Merry Christmas" From Pastor Rob
Herald Angels
Hillside Church, I am very thankful that 15 years ago, God called me to be your pastor. I preached my installation sermon here on September 24, 2006. This year, you showed me and my family a lot of love, and I really grateful. But then, in countless ways, you show us love every year, and I hope we show you love too. I won’t say ‘reciprocate.’ Love is not reciprocal, but flows from the Spirit beating within each of us and from the generosity of the heart. You show love because of the heartbeat of Christ in you. I hope that’s what I am doing as well.
