DEAR SAINTS – Pastor’s Blog

Dear Saints,

As we find ourselves both in shock that we are still in Covid madness as well in a second year of Holy week, apart, I want to share with you a video I can’t stop watching. “TJ” has found himself on trial for something he KNOWS he has done but is shamelessly unrelenting in admitting he has done a bad thing. Even when his Father continues to pepper him with the same question,” Did you do this?!?!” while showing the evidence AND his sibling giving testimony to TJ’s naughty deed, TJ holds fast to his resolve. He emphatically, repeatedly denies ...

Strength & Courage

Dear Saints, I’m hoping you are noticing/hearing the increase in bird songs each morning. It’s such a nice way to wake-up. Well, I should say MOST bird songs. The other day I woke up to what I thought was a dog barking but it was way too early for the leashed dogs to be ‘communicating' with each other. Then I realized it wasn’t a dog. It was a bird. A BIG bird. A turkey had gotten itself trapped inside the fenced-in water catchment area next to my building. From time to time turkeys will land on the fence posts and ...

Hate Stirs Up Strife; Love Covers All; Proverbs 10:12

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses. Daily Reflection We have been bombarded with “hate speech”. Our political leaders and news media seem to think they are free to speak with vileness and vindictiveness and expect that we ...

    SURRENDER

    Take Lord, all my liberty.

    Receive my memory, my understanding and my whole will.

    Whatever I have and possess

    you have given to me.

    To you, I restore it wholly; and to your will

    I utterly surrender it for your direction.

    Give me the love of you only,

    with your grace,

    and I am rich enough;

    nor do I ask for anything else.

    St. Ignatius Loyola (1491 – 1556)
