From the Pastor


Greetings,  

Ash Wednesday was on Valentine’s day.  What a way to celebrate God’s love for us!  As we continue through Lent, the forty days where we prepare for Christ’s resurrection, let us focus on that love. 1 John 4 17-18 God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us. This way, love has the run of the house, becomes at home and mature in us, so that we’re free of worry on Judgment Day—our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s. There is no room in love for fear. Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life—fear of death, fear of judgment—is one not yet fully formed in love. (The Message (MSG)

May we live into the love of God, everyone and ourselves.  

Blessings,
