The Latest News

From The Pastor.....


I was listening to a podcast: On Being with Krista Tippett and she was interviewing Martin Sheen and this is what he said:

But Christ comes — God comes to us uninvited. We’re not out there looking, waiting for him. We think we are. I have another phrase I use so often when I’m faced with having to do something that I know I have to do and yet I want to put it off, procrastinate a bit. It’s, “We must accept the cup as offered, not altered.” And so, you know, we always want — “Could you pour some out, please? It’s too full,” or, “Could you put a little sugar in there, please?” “Maybe not today. Can I take some tomorrow?” No, no, afraid not. We have to accept it as it’s offered. And so that’s what I think the full embracing of spirituality is really about.

I agree.

Much Love,


Much love,
