Read 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Lord, whatever this day may bring, Thy name be praised!
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Quite a quote, especially when we consider that Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote it as a prisoner of war in a Nazi concentration camp.  It has incredible spiritual maturity.  That type of maturity does not take place overnight.  We have to grow, work, practice, express, study, share, and apply our faith in all our daily transactions to mature.

Using Noah and his ark as an inspiration, I will engage in a sermon series beginning Sunday regarding fundamentals to our arks as we strive to grow, deepen, and mature in our spirituality.  We do not know when the storms in life will come, but we can be sure they will.  I hope you will come along with us as we prepare to fill our arks.

We continue to celebrate around the church:

Thank you for the beautiful flowers and warm inviting space created by the parking lot door.  If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to come by that area and let your hearts be warmed.  Thank you to the many hands and hearts that reworked this area.

See you Sunday as we gather together with grateful hearts to give thanks to God!

In Christ’s Light and Love,

Pastor Pat
