From the Pastor

Well, D’Anne and I had an unforgettable Sunday on April 28th! Thank you to everyone who worked hard to organize the special elements of the worship service, and to the Hospitality Ministry Team for the fabulous lunch. (Brother pastors in attendance told me later that it was clear we’d done that before, because it went so smoothly.) Chelsea Willis summed it up for my family Sunday night, “It was such a great weekend filled with so much joy!”

Bro. Gary’s sermon sealed the atmosphere of gratitude to God for us all. A similar message comes from two-time Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington, who is not shy about his Christian faith. At a November 2015 church banquet he urged his listeners to live in a constant attitude of thankfulness for God’s goodness:

“Give thanks for blessings every day. Every day. Embrace gratitude. Encourage others. It is impossible to be grateful and hateful at the same time. I pray that you put your slippers way under your bed at night, so that when you wake in the morning you have to start on your knees to find them. And while you’re down there, say ‘thank you.’ A bad attitude is like a flat tire. Until you change it, you’re not going anywhere.”


Gratefully yours in Christ,
Bro. Rick
