“Dear Saints” – Pastor’s Blog

Come, Get Plugged In!

Dear Saints, We’re (almost) back in the saddle. There are many blessings (hidden and obvious) in returning to routines that, by and large, most people and especially children thrive in.

    O sacred season of Autumn, be my teacher,
    for I wish to learn the virtue of contentment.
