A Message from Rev. Dean

March 26th  - When This is Over

It is astonishing to think how much our life has changed over these past ten or more days:

- Schools are closed

- Restaurants can only do take-outs

- Shortages of items at the grocery stores

- Cancellations of sports

- The need to do social distancing

- The closing of our borders to non-essential travel

- People returning from trips isolating themselves at home

- The temporary closing of our churches and so many other changes. Read more

March 26th One Pair of Hands

I'm now solely working from home; there's not going to be any reason to move into our new offices in the fall as my division is now mostly telecommuting or at least working remotely.

 

This week has not been without its stresses, challenges and moments of frustration and then I remember we are in the season of Lent....my 40 days of giving myself unto the Lord. I realize I've failed and fallen into the temptation of panic, lack of faith and anxiety.  Two statements from scripture provided the comfort I needed to hear:

- I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.(Philippians 4:13.)

- Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

(1 Peter 5:7)

 

One Pair of Hands was a song I'd never heard of until just a couple of years ago.  Strangely, the song has been sent to me twice this week.  When you hear the words, may you draw courage and strength to face the challenges each day.

A Message from Rev. Dean

March 19th  - We Shall Overcome

There is a hymn book called Praise Ways that I had a copy of at home but had misplaced. I knew it would turn up eventually and yesterday, as Nadine did a thorough cleaning of our room, she pulled out our magazine bin. Sure enough, in the bin was the missing Praise Ways. When I opened the book to the first page, I came to the song We Shall Overcome. I began reading the words to the song and I thought to myself how fitting for these days and times. Read more

March 15th  He Will Carry You Through

As we are in the midst of this world-wide pandemic, we are struggling to find peace, to find answers, to get home from international travel, to work, to go to school. I just came home from an appointment and the staff is going to be laid off indefinitely.  We have seen emotions run high in fervor of purchasing the last package of toilet tissue.  Financially, we are concerned about pending recessions.  Our restaurants, businesses and churches have been closed in unprecedented measures. Never in my lifetime have I seen these kinds of events. 

 

However, our Almighty God is fully aware of the situation and all He wants us to do is to trust Him. He will carry us through.  Praise Him through the midst of this storm and this time of Lent.  Perhaps this is a time for us to grow closer than ever to our Lord.  He loves us and will carry us through this storm.
