I love its history and heritage! I love its vision and future!
I love the spirit of Jesus which is in the hearts and lives of our members
and friends! We aren't perfect but we are pressing on to be more
"Christ-like" every day! I love this church!
"The Christian life is a continuous going into the presence of God from the presence of men and
women and then coming out into the presence of men and women from the presence of God. It is like
the rhythm of sleep and work. We cannot work unless we have our time of rest; and sleep will not
come unless we have worked until we are tired.
There are two dangers in life. First there is the danger of too constant activity. We cannot work without
with rest, and we cannot live the Christian life unless we give ourselves time with God. Second, there
is a danger of too much withdrawal. Devotion that does not issue in action is not real devotion.
The wonderful thing about this story (our morning lesson) is that through it runs an implicit contrast
between the attitude of Jesus and the attitude of the disciples. When the disciples saw how late it was
and how hungry and tired the crowd were they said, Send them away so they can find something to
eat. In effect, they said, these people are tired and hungry, get rid of them and let someone else worry
(William Barclay - Mark)
