Our pastor, The Reverend Dr. John Neal.
We have just been through Holy Week and we celebrated Easter together. We saw the Prince of Peace humble and riding on a donkey. We noticted how he was one who upset all those who were in charge of religon and prayer. Yet he gave love to the lonley ones and healed those in need, and then he called upon us to care about enemies--espically when we were ready to condemn and exclude tham. At the table on Maundy Thursday we saw him invite all and share graciously. And then on Good Friday we observed how much he loved. He took on Sin and Evil and defeated both and so became our Savior and Redeemer.
We live in a world full of pain, dissapointment, and hurt yet we are not willing to give into anger, hostility, or destruction. As the moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, H. Rada, said recently, "Let's rember that loving our neighbor is not an optional commandment!"
I pray that when you get discouraged and dissapointed you will be "the people of God" depending upon the love of God. Put Easter into practice.
