“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful.” John 15:1-2

“Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Prov. 4:23

One Sunday morning, a few weeks ago, I shared about a flower that Lydia and I had entrusted someone to water while we were on vacation. Unfortunately, the person did not water the plant and we arrived to find a shriveled shadow of the once vibrant flower we left. The leaves and stems had mostly turned brown and I honestly thought that the plant was a goner. I was given some hope by the fact that one stem of the flower remained green and the leaves, though clearly dried up, remained a light green color. We were determined to save the flower and so we watered it profusely and added some fresh soil in the hopes of nurturing our flower back to health.

Pastor's Pen
October 2014

by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

Stress. Anxiety. Fear. These words capture well the state of mind of many of us in America these days. Over the last several years, we have witnessed dramatic market losses, the collapse of the world’s largest insurance companies, and many bankruptcies and mergers. Every day seems to bring another piece of economic uncertainty.

A recent survey found that over three in four Americans are stressed about their economy and personal finances. Half are worried about providing for their families basic needs. Over half of the respondents reported feeling angry and irritable, and reported lying awake at night worried about this. The report concludes that, “the declining state of the nation’s economy is taking a physical and emotional toll on people nationwide.”

Marriage Moment
Brian Collis
October 2014

And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. - 1 Kings 19:11-12

The world we live in is full of wind, and fire and earthquakes… both literal and figurative. Some are beyond our control, but far too many of them we willingly choose and accept in our lives. These are the things in our lives that prevent us from hearing God’s still, small voice.
