Pastor's Weekly Message

"Consider the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these." Luke 12:27

No 4th of July lilies this year, just a few days later there they were though.  What a treat.  Those tall, stately beauties providing their Easter scent on warm summer days.  Hostas blooming furiously out back with lavender colored petals.  Blue and pink lupine up on the deck producing blooms for weeks.  The garden busting forth.  Such sweet miracles offering sensory delights, so needed in the face of many challenges.  Reminders of the presence of the Creator at any and all times.

Jesus offered the words above, and prefaced them with this, "Do not worry about your life ....."  Always in need of reminders Lord.

In His name,
Pastor Randy

"The mercy of God has no beginning and no end but endures forever.  Friends, receive the free gift of God's grace that is your this day.  Amen."
