Pastor's Weekly Message

"For everything there is a season..." Ecclesiastes 3:1
  So begins a pretty well known piece of scripture, a favorite of mine that speaks to the whole of life it seems.  But about those seasons.  I know it is still the end of August but the coming of Labor Day weekend, the beginning of school next week (not to mention the cool nights and all those spider webs in the morning), mean that fall is nearly upon us.  The clincher for me is a particular sound of this past week or so, with the windows open in the evening, I can hear the Hillsboro High School band practicing in preparation for football season.

Sounds, sights, smells, the richness of the seasons.  The richness of life itself.  Take a moment to take it in.

In praise of the Creator,
Pastor Randy

Lord, we thank you for the gift of time and space, for the vastness of creation and the richness of our lives.  Help us to use well the time that we are given.  Amen.
