Our church is a place for you to find rest, renewed hope, courage and inspiration ...

"For it is by his unwarranted favour that you are saved,
through trusting him; it is not your own doing.
It is God's gift, not a reward for work done
".  Ephesians 2 v 8-9.

Learn your lessons well

I can see a swathe of sinners sitting yonder
And they're acting like a pack of fools.
Gazing into space letting their minds wander,
Stead of studying the good Lord's rules.
You better pay attention,
Build your comprehension,
There's gonna be a quiz at your ascension.
Not to mention any threat of hell,
But if you're smart you'll learn your lessons well ...

Every bright description of the promised land meant,
You can reach it if you keep alert.
Learning every line and every last commandment
May not help you, but it couldn't hurt. First you’ve gotta read ‘em, then you’ve gotta heed ‘em.
You never know when you're goin to need 'em.
Just as old Elijah said to Jezebel:
“You'd better start to learn your lessons well!"
Stephen Schwartz - Godspell

Thoughts for Today

Cowardice asks the question - is it safe?
Expediency asks the question - is it politic?
Vanity asks the question - is it popular?
But conscience asks the question - is it right?

And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
