From The Pastor...
This month as we celebrate the 239th birthday of our country, it is a good time for us to reflect on our freedom. As disappointed as we may be about the issues
that divide us as a nation, we are still privileged to live in the most blessed country in the world.
July 4th reminds us of all that has taken place to make the USA a free nation—the wars that have been fought and lives that have been sacrificed, the struggles that our ancestors endured in order to create a place of refuge and peace for those who suffered the persecutions of their homelands.
Here, unlike in many other countries, we enjoy privileges and opportunities that allow us to live in freedom, to do the things we enjoy without oppression, and for that we are grateful.
The Apostle Paul reminds us of another kind of freedom that was also won for us in sacrifice and blood. That is the freedom from the consequences of sin for which Jesus died on the cross. It is the greatest freedom of all because it grants us the privilege of eternal life.
As we celebrate our nation’s beginnings, let us be thankful that God did and still does bless America, even though many seem to forget, take for granted or challenge that part of our story. And God still blesses each one of us who believe in him and follow his Son.
In this newsletter, you will find ways in which you may offer God your thanksgiving through worship and other opportunities to participate in the life of the church. For those of you who will be enjoying vacation this month, may you have a great time of rest and relaxation.
May God bless you,
Rev. Janet E. Lewis, Pastor
