"You have been saved by

God's gift of grace in Christ; 

not your own doing."

Latest NewsLetters at Grace


From the desk of Pastor David,

On a recent calm summer night, I took my family on a cheap date to the local playground. My wife and son were playing in the sandbox while I sat on the bench watching the other children run around. (I don’t do sand). While I watched all the playful activities, I had mixed emotions. On the one hand, I was happy to see everyone enjoying the age of innocence, the time when there are no bills to pay, no deadlines to meet, no to-do lists to complete. The only duty at this age is to be a kid. I sure miss those days.But on the other hand, I felt anxiety and concern for these kids (including my own). What world would they grow up in? What challenges would they face? And I know every generation has similar worries for its youth, but I fear this time is different. There are certainly major threats they will have to contend with: the cesspool called social media, the potential fiscal insolvency of our State and our nation, the growing threat of artificial intelligence, etc., etc.
            In generations past, people were able to meet the challenges they faced, and they persevered. But this time it’s different for two reasons. For one, common sense has been banned from the public square. People used to have the capacity and the confidence to think critically, to explore, to question, to challenge, to think and to learn. Today, it seems that children are not taught how to think, rather they are taught what to think. Education has been displaced by indoctrination. Socrates said that the unexamined life is not worth living. Alexander Hamilton said if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. Secondly, and with more dire consequences, we have now raised an entire generation without God. And a Godless generation who blindly accepts what to think is a sure recipe for chaos.
            Given such a landscape before us, it is easy to despair; it is easy to feel hopeless, to conclude there is nothing we can do. The problem is too big, and we are too small. And that would be a proper conclusion. Except for the fact that our God is a big God. He lives among us. He is a God who is always in control, always fully accessible and always protective of His people. What can we do? We can pray; we can love; we can serve; we can forgive; we can offer food to the hungry and water to the thirsty. But be warned. Before we hear “well done, good and faithful servant,” we could possibly hear “you’re under arrest for hate speech.”  I pray we never see such days. Just remember, our God is an awesome God; He is alive; and He has prepared a room for each of us. To Him be the glory. Thank you for all for your faithful witness through the years.

Blessings to you all,  
Pastor David
