Thoughts From Pastor John (November)

As I watched the news program, I could not believe what I was seeing, hospitals being targeted for bombing in Syria, and even worse than that, the reporter claimed that Syria’s dictator, Bashar al-Assad, would use chlorine gas to make people sick enough to go to the hospitals…then bomb the hospitals.

As people of the church, what are we to do with this? We struggle with it and we seek the Christian answer. We seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we seek the presence of God, we await the Messiah.

It seems that every time that we see or hear any news, there is another powerful storm, or an earthquake, or thousands of acres on fire, or folks firing weapons at each other, and where is God in all of that?

The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper… the whisper of a baby’s coo, lying in a manger…assuring us not to fear for he is with us…through the storms, the earthquakes, and through all kinds of fire… the thrill of hope, and this weary world REJOICES!

Keep seeking and Merry Christmas!

Love y’all,
John
