Youth News

“Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” Psalm 8:2

Recently I was a groomsman at an Indian wedding. It was quite an elaborate and extravagant affair full of lively music, dancing and food. Just about everything required the participation and enthusiasm of the entire crowd.

One could hardly distinguish young from old as everyone was together for this joyous occasion. One of the most memorable moments came at the beginning of the ceremony. The groom, dressed in fancy almost princely garments mounted a white horse adorned with jewels and armor. In front of the groom was his entourage of friends and family all dancing and cheering, announcing the arrival of the groom for the patiently waiting bride. It was a really fun and emotional event, since I knew how long my friend had waited to find the person he would spend the rest of his life with. It was hard not to think of the triumphal entry scene, where Jesus was arriving to redeem His bride, the Church.

Marriage Moment
Brian Collis
June 2015

Run the Race, Part II

The world we live in is at times busy, hectic, confusing, and overwhelming, and it is hard to do marriage right within it. There are so many things vying for our attention that is is easy to slip on occasion, and not keep our attention where it belongs; on God, on our spouse and on making our marriage work as it was intended. In our society there are messages constantly bombarding us via all medias (TV, the web, music, literature, pop culture, etc) that marriage is unnecessary and meaningless, and Christian marriage in particular is outdated and obsolete. It is difficult to guard against these messages; we all hear them. the question is, are we listening? Are we letting the world's message in? Are we making decisions about our marriages tainted by earthly values?

Did your marriage start out wonderful, but then the positive feelings slowly eroded, and now you find yourself wondering what happened, unsure of how you got here from there? Galatians 5:7 says:

You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth?

Pastor's Pen
June 2015

by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

Recently I was reading a passage from Colossians 3 that really struck me and I thought I’d share some thoughts with you.

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”

When I was young, my father used to tell me, “Allan, you’ve got a one-track mind!” The point was that when I got my mind focused on something, like a new ball glove or new soccer ball, that was all I could think about. And so I persisted in pestering my dad until I got it. You could call it a “mindset”, a “single-minded focus”, perhaps even an obsession, but it was an effective way of obtaining certain goals or things.
