From the Pastor...

Not yesterday's load we 
are called on to bear,
Nor the morrow's uncertain
and shadowy care;
Why should we look forward
or back with dismay?
Our needs, as our mercies,
are but for the day.

One day at a time,
and the day is His day;
He hath numbered its hours,
though they haste or delay.
His grace is sufficient,
we walk not alone'
As the day, so the strength
that He giveth His own.

- Annie Johnson Flint

From the Pastor...

God is Love.  1 John 4:8b

Love is an image of God, and not a lifeless image, but the living essence of the divine nature which beams full of all goodness. - Luther

Not matter how often your faith in such an announcement was clouded, no matter how the pain and suffering of the moment made you speak in a wrong mood...God is love.
Live in the belief of it; preach it by your sweetened, chastened, happy life; sing it in consecrated moments of peaceful joy: God is love.
Song is the sign of an unburdened heart; so sing your songs of love unbidden, ever rising higher and highest unto fuller concept of the greatest, grandest fact on the stage of life: God is love. - Oswald Chambers

Love is the purification of the heart from self; it strengthens and ennobles the character, gives a higher motive and a nobler aim to every action of life and makes both man and woman strong, noble and courageous; and the power to love truly and devotedly is the noblest gift with which a human being can be endowed; but it is a sacred fire that must not be burned to idols. - Jewsbury

We are shaped and fashioned by what we love. - Geothe

It is possible that a man can be so changed by love as hardly to be recognized as the same person. - Terence

The cure for all the ills and wrongs, the cares, the sorrows and the crimes of humanity, all lie in that one word "love". It is the divine vitality that everywhere produces and restores life. To each and every one of us, it gives the power of working miracles if we will. - L. M. Child

They are the true disciples of Christ, not who know most, but who love most. - Spanheim

O love of God most free, come, warm my heart, come fill my soul, come lead me unto Thee. - Oscar Clute
