Winter is Gone...Spring is Here
by Pastor Bill Kluender

Have you been eagerly awaiting Spring as I have been? I’m going to take a guess here and say the large majority of people in the Northeast have ear-to-ear smiles with the thought of sunny skies and warmer temperatures.

It almost felt as if this past winter would never end. Have you ever been in a season in your life like this past winter that seemed cold, dark and almost without end?  I, like many of you I’m sure, can attribute a season in your life that felt like that. You may even be in a season like that right now. Despite the promise of warm, sunny weather, you might be wondering…when will this cold, dark season pass?

Love's Reward, The Seal of Sonship
by Pastor James Wheeler

love-articleDid you know that Jesus said there is a reward for those who love?  In Matthew 5 Jesus contrasts the traditional view of love in that time period, against the eternal law of love.  

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘you shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:43-45a NKJV

lmarticle logo2Hello and Merry Christmas!

What a joy it is to celebrate the birth of our Savior!

I have a childhood memory I would like to share with you.  Both my grandparents knew Christ and I had a close relationship with both of them.  I watched them age over the years living a simple and peaceful life.  When I was 17 years old, my grandparents entered the hospital within one month of each other, my grandmother with pneumonia and my grandfather with a broken hip.  My mother and I would take turns being there at meal times to be certain they were eating properly.  I knew their health was failing, but my hope was for them to return to their home.
