Pastor's Note 11.22.2019

Good Day Family,


This Sunday, we conclude our worship series, Joy and Thanksgiving: Loved by God. It’s also the last Sunday of the Christian year and of the period know as Ordinary Time. Ordinary time denotes that there aren’t high and holy days during this season in the Christian calendar. It’s that time between the day of Pentecost (the birth of the church) and Advent, which celebrates the birth of Christ.


This Sunday, in particular, is Christ the King or the Sovereignty of Christ Sunday. It’s helpful to note, in these and all troubling times, that Jesus remains on the throne. These words of Psalm 46 provide the encouragement we need:

God is our refuge and strength,

a help always near

in times of great trouble.

That’s why we won’t be afraid

when the world falls apart,

when the mountains crumble into the

center of the sea,

when its waters roar and rage,

when the mountains shake

because of its surging waves.

My prayer, as we continue together, is that we keep before us the reign of God as our frame of reference in interacting with one another and our neighbor, in making decisions for ourselves and that impact others, and in discerning what is the will of God in our midst.


O give thanks…for the Lord is good and reigns forever!

Be well,

Pastor Cheryl
