Weekly Message from the Pastor - Apr. 13, 2018

April 13, 2018

Dear Friends,

When have you encountered a situation that seemed hopeless? There seemed to be no way to change the circumstances. Maybe you were part of a company that was struggling and saw the path to failure unfolding; the handwriting was on the wall, people were updating their resumes – it seemed hopeless.

Or you’ve driven past a part of town that is marked with abandoned, crumbling buildings, with windows broken, graffiti-decorated exteriors, and weed-choked yards. You think that no one could ever live there again. The possibility of this area becoming a vibrant community seems hopeless.

We continue in the Easter season where we reflect on the promise of resurrection.  A promise that says things are not always as they seem. Seemingly hopeless situations can, with God’s presence, be transformed. So, the company was purchased, re-organized and survived. A contractor with vision, purchases the run-down row houses, rebuilds and renovates and it becomes a thriving area.

Is there a place in your life where you are feeling a sense of hopelessness? How are you calling God to help in your situation?  This Sunday we will reflect on God’s movement from hopelessness to hope; and what that looks like in our lives.

I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. I am grateful to Dan Lees for bringing the message last Sunday. I know that you were blessed.

Yours in Christ,

Linda
