Pastor's Pen
May 2017
by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

“He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!” Hallelujah!! Yesterday was our grand and glorious Easter Sunday celebration. I am still basking in the after-glow of the hope and joy of Christ’s resurrection remembered. I realize that by the time this newsletter reaches you we will be a good ways past Holy Week and Easter. Never the less, still fresh in my heart and mind, it is my theme for today. The truth is, as the children’s song says it: “Every morning is Easter morning form now on! Every day is Resurrection Day, the past is over and gone! Goodbye guilt, good bye fear, good riddance. Hello Lord, hello Sun! I am one of the Easter people! My new life has begun!” Indeed, as Christians worship our living Lord on the 1st day of every week, “the Lord’s Day”, every Sunday is a celebration of His resurrection. Therefore I want to share a poem with you written by one of our members, which I feel is worthy of sharing:

Marriage Moment
Brian Collis
May 2017

Choice

There’s a saying that states “Don’t mock your wife’s choices… you’re one of them.” Tongue in cheek, sure, but there is truth in that. You and your spouse (presumably) chose each other. You made a choice to get married, to share a home, a bed and your lives. You chose, and then vowed before God and witnesses, to forego all others, to love, honor and cherish one another, not for a while but “until death,” or “as long as you both shall live” depending on your officiant. It is important to remember this fact, so that whenever there is disagreement over some issue - large or small - if there is friction, you can remember the bigger picture.

Amos 3:3 asks: "Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?"

You agreed! How is it then that so often couples seem to so easily forget that they are together by choice, that being married was on purpose, that they chose to be part of something bigger than themselves? That they chose to put another’s needs above their own, that they chose a life of service to another instead of one of being served?

Youth
May 2017

Isaiah 41:10 "So do not be afraid. I am with you.
Do not be terrified. I am your God.
I will make you strong and help you.
I will hold you safe in my hands.
I always do what is right."

Recently I went for a check-up and to get some blood work. I was only really nervous about the blood work because the last time that I had blood taken from me I thought I was going to faint. So when the moment came for me to get my blood drawn again I tried to calm myself and not "punk out." Lydia was there too and so I really didn't want to look weak. Yet, sure enough, as soon as the nurse had begun taking my blood, I felt the all too familiar feeling. I began getting lightheaded and feeling nauseous. I thought that my words had started to slur and that I would faint again. So the nurse told me to not move and slow my breathing, shortly thereafter I began to feel normal again. Both he and Lydia reminded me that this was merely a psychological reaction to the process and that I was in no harm at all.
