Like the old Boy Scout moto: "Be Prepared". We should be prepared in our hearts, filled with Love for our fellow man/woman. We can never fight Hate with Hate, for then Satan wins. We must confront hate with pure Love. Yes, some of us may become Martyrs, however remember the song "They will know we are Christians by our Love"
Each Sunday morning during the Advent Season, we have the devotion and lighting of the Advent Wreath candles to remind us of what this season is all about. As I stated in a sermon a couple of weeks ago, I have learned two things that are absolutely certain. They are: "One: There is a God; and Two: It is not me!"
God's ways are much bigger than our ways; His thoughts are greater than our thoughts. We cannot put God in a Box for he is much too large for that. There are some who think they have Him in their hip pocket for their "beck and call"; again it is impossible for us to contain God!
Let us rejoice in our Faith and go forth in His Love and Grace! I pray that you have a Great Week and a Merry Christmas, and I hope to see you in Church Sunday morning; and also Christmas Eve at 7pm for our annual Candlelight Service, so we can grow in our relationship with God and each other!
Your Brother In Christ, Pastor Ken
