 A Word from Pastor Rhonda                Summer 2018


I was struck by a recent cartoon which showed a Mom listing out her schedule- all the plces and times she had to transport her children; likening it to the complexity of lining- up a Rubik's Cube.


Akeeping us moving with little time to think, let alone reflect. nd I laughed; wondering, like many of you, how "I managed to do it" when the kids were all home.  And yet even with them grown, there's the busy-ness of schedule, activity 


Yet, I know the importance of claiming time to just "be".  Quiet time to talk with God, to let go of the tasks at hand and gain the peace and renewal prayer brings.                 


And so the closing words of Psalm 121 NIV spoke to me- "The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore" reminding me of God's constant faithfulness, that we simpley need to stop, look, up to the hills and be refreshed and strengthened by the fact our "help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." 


Come and give thanks each Sunday morning at 9:30 a. m. that "  We can rest easy in the Lord and find the re-creation we need.   

Pastor Rhonda
