June 2015 Pastor’s Newsletter

Blessings to you and those you love in Christ,

The month of June is always special to me for it is one time a year that we honor our fathers.  My dad was a very special person at home and at work.  He was well respected in Stow and surrounding cities for 28 years as the Electrical Inspector.  He left his mark by being a great father and role model.  And too, he will always be remembered as a gentleman who treated all people as equals.  He treated them with respect and was always willing to turn a cheek, so as not to become part of a problem or confrontation.

My dad, like yours, I pray, taught my three sisters and me that we would have a choice in life.  He said in his own way that when being confronted with  Goliath-sized  problems, that we could either respond saying that the problem was too big to hit, or like David in the Old Testament felt, that these giant problems–  like Goliath–were too big to miss.

Yes, in life you and I will find many Goliath size problems, and it is time to begin understanding that God the Father is bigger than any problem set before us.  In “God’s Little Instruction Book” it is written that the only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him.

Paul writes in Second Corinthians 6 that it is Jesus who reminds us that HE WILL BE A FATHER TO YOU AND TO ME, AND THAT WE WILL BE HIS SONS AND DAUGHTERS.  Now is the time to proclaim ourselves as “Children of God” and reference HIM as OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN.

Blessings to each of you,
