Pastor's Weekly Message

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." Hebrews 13:8
 
Change is constant, although it may not always be apparent.  Sometimes it is comforting, challenging, sorrowful, surprising (come up with your own adjective).
 
There was a major change in our back yard.  It became apparent, in a short time in my mind, that the cedar tree at the corner of the house had died and was drying out swiftly.  It is gone now.  Already miss sitting and watching the birds perch in its upper branches.
 
At the same time thinking of watching Daphne, our sweet nearly one year old grand daughter.  Every visit brings surprises and entertainment, constant change.
 
And then there is the Christ, present in the death and the life, the changes that make up living, making it possible to carry on, or enjoy it all the more.
 
In His name,
Pastor Randy
