Pastor's Weekly Message

"Peace be with you." John 20:19

Those are Jesus first words to his gathered disciples after his resurrection.  They certainly needed to hear those words again and again.  

We "pass the peace" every Sunday as part of our worship time.  That is usually a fairly raucous time.  Even though that is the case it can still provide a moment of peace to many.

I believe Jesus words of peace still come to us in a great many ways.  Do they come to you?  In what way?  Do you have time for some silence at home?  Do you hear a word of peace in music?  Can it be found in the wonders of nature all around us?  Maybe there are times when it seems it cannot be found at all.  May those times not last too long.

May the peace of the Christ be with us all

Pastor Randy

"Holy God, your glory and power is made known in the resurrection.  We are Easter people because Christ is risen.  Where you live, life and light, freedom and salvation, hope and reconciliation break out.  You penetrate our lives.  You invigorate our love.  All praise and honor and glory be yours as we manifest the risen Christ in our lives.  Amen."
