From the Pastors desk


From Pastor’s desk – February 2021.


I recently came across the poem below written by Ken Keith, PHD - from his book titled “Anyway”. It reminds me that however important beginnings may be, diligence and persistence often make the effort satisfying as well as meaningful before God. Praying for spirit of diligence as I live out my faith in Jesus Christ.


Eternal Perspective


“People are sometimes unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; forgive them anyway.


If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish and ulterior motives; be kind anyway.


If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; be successful anyway.


If you dare to lead through dangerous days, you will probably be blamed for the faults, failures, and sins of others; dare to lead anyway.


If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.


If you find serenity and happiness, people may be jealous; be happy anyway.


What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway.


The good you do today, people may forget tomorrow; do good anyway.


Give the world the best you have - and it may never be enough; give the world the best you have anyway.


You see, in the final analysis, it's all between you and Almighty God; it was never between you and them anyway.”



May God’s love richly warm your heart this winter.
