The sun rises and the sun goes down,
and hurries to the place where it rises.
Can it possibly be March already?
I saw a funny line. The writer offered a friendly reminder for us, considering March was on the horizon. She wanted for us to beware:
"March is a false idol that will break your heart.”
Today, with the warm sunshine, we see hints of spring. Is this a false idol? Probably not. At the same time, there are almost certainly a few more winter storms in store for us later in March, or in April, or maybe May, or…!
As the sunshine gives rise to hope for spring and summer, let me remind you of the hope of the Gospel.
This is more certain than the fact that there are storms - as well as nice weather - ahead.
God loves you with a never ending love, and has sent Jesus to make you God’s own.
We look ahead to Easter as a celebration of this truth that lights our way, every single day, even when the snow flies, and darkness threatens all round.
Peace to you, Pastor Phil
I will be sending the March Newsletter a bit later today - let me know if you have any problems opening the pdf…
The sanctuary and chapel are open each day, you can stop by for prayer.
