Pastor’s Perspective

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
-Psalm 46:1-2

I often use the beginning of Psalm 46 when I lead a funeral service.  When one’s life is upset by grief and loss, when it feels like the world has gone mad, it is good to know that we find strength and refuge in our Lord.  But given these tumultuous times, I am mindful of a God who is always there for us, and though it may feel like the mountains of our world shake and the very earth we walk upon trembles in fear, we can trust in our God who will never forsake us.

Blessings and Peace,
Pastor Ron

Worship
This Sunday, January 17, 2021, Pastor Ron will lead worship on the calling of Jesus’ first disciples from the Gospel of Mark, “Immediately,” Mark 1:16-20.  As the sermon title suggests, there is an urgency to the Gospel call.  I hope you will join us!

Last Week’s Sermon
Missed the service from last week?  On January 10, 2021, Pastor Ron preached on the Baptism of Jesus from the Gospel of Mark, “Now is the Time,” Mark 1:9-15.  Mark is the shortest of Gospels and things happen rapidly.  Jesus tells us, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”
