A Word from Our Pastor
I am blessed to have such a beautiful wife and seven children. My family and I have greatly enjoyed
the Dunnellon area and are excited to be a part of such dynamic church growth. I have been ordained
since 1989 and this is my fourth appointment ministering to a local congregation. I have served the church
on the District level in two areas and the Annual Conference on the Board of Church and Society.
I can't imagine pastoring anywhere else at this time of my life. I have no doubt that God has blessed
me greatly by serving this wonderful congregation."
Pastor's Weekly Devotion
Our devotion this week is titled, "Making a Difference." It comes from
Wednesday, March 20th and is under the topic of, "Kindness". The
Bible verse for us to focus on is Luke 6:31 where Jesus said, "Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you."
That, of course, is called the Golden Rule. It is my understanding
that this is the first time we have recorded words that Jesus has given
to us to go on the offense. There are other recordings outside of the
Bible of not doing to others what you don't want them to do to you,
but Jesus is the very first to say these words about doing good
to others because that's what you expect them to do to you.
Saying that, it is easier said than done. :) There are just some folks
that we struggle being nice to, but the reality of our Christian faith is
that if it possesses us, it should be our instinct. The God image
inside of us moves us to love others and be kind to them.
Let me leave you with three thoughts to ponder this week.
Number one. What is a random act of kindness that I can do for
Number two. Romans 11:22-24 says, "Consider the kindness
and the sternness of God." What do you think that means?
Finally, our last thought comes from 2 Corinthians 5:21. That
verse says that, "He that knew no sin became our sin, so that
we might become the righteousness of God." I believe that is
amazing kindness toward us as sinners. What's your thoughts?
