It seems impossible that this will be our fifth Christmas that God, through His loving grace, joined our paths together atNorthPownalUnitedMethodistChurch. During this precious time of the year, I would like to share with you a few thoughts.
Each Christmas is anticipated by people from all walks of life. Many are not aware of the greatest gift that God gave man. This Christmas season let us remember that Christ cares for the hurting, the lonely, the destitute, the hungry, the homeless, the sick and the oppressed. Let us not be counted among those that crowd the malls, and make Christmas so commercialized, that they completely forget what might be the will of God.
Jesus came to satisfy every human longing and desire. I encourage all of you to draw even closer to Christ this Christmas. Let us make a difference for Him. Let us be different for Him. Let Jesus make us different. Let Jesus be the difference in us this Christmas season.
By keep Jesus first, in our daily lives, we can be sure that those around us will be reached by that great spiritual light. It is my prayer that we all take time to renew our faithfulness to our church, our daily prayer discipline, and the regular reading of God’s Word. And above all, don’t be bashful. Invite a friend to attend our church as we celebrate the great coming of our savior and Lord, long after the Christmas season has pass.
MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!!! With our Love and Blessings from our hearts to yours.
Pastor Ray, and Fay St.Pierre
