Hoping For God’s Gift Living in the Light

You ever ride down route 65 at night (The Apalachicola Forest)? Ever drive in pouring rain at night? Meet a bear?

We are not by nature nocturnal! How many animals can you name that are nocturnal? I can list 28! More common in Florida owl, fox, opossum. raccoon, mole, skunk, armadillo, wolf-coyote.

What about Christians as a species? This group Pawl describes as people who can live in the light with God;s Grace! Come to worship this Advent as we worship the Lord lighting candles of Hope, Peace, Love, and Joy. All are marks of God’s Kingdom prophesied through Isaiah and the prophets! Are you ready to live in the light of the Lord? What an opportunity!

Blessings and Grace be with you,

Pastor Brian

Surf SoundsSurf Sounds

  Last night I could hear the surf through my open bedroom window.  All night it crashed against the shore, advancing and receding.  The more quietly I lay, the louder it became, until it seemed to fill the room with its thunder.  How lovely to lie in the darkness and hear the ocean’s voice just outside my window!  I was reminded that even in the darkness your voice can be heard when I lie silent.  I thank you, Lord, for all the forms and shapes Your voice takes, for the laughter of gulls, for the harsh croak of a heron, for the soughing branches of pine trees, for the roar of ocean waves.  May I never grow impatient with these voices or dismiss their message; you created this world and still speak to us through it.  I thank you, God, for your voices that reach out to me—even in the darkness. Amen.

Running For JesusRunning For Jesus

Why is faith so difficult? Is it because it does not always lead to a comfortable life? In fact it often leads to challenges that cause pain and suffering.

Jesus teaches us how to run the race of life and we have witnesses who love, care, and often join us in our journey of faith. Join us in our journey of faith. Join us Sunday and prayerfully let us examine how we might celebrate our life race!
