​​​​​​Pastor’s Column:

​April
Finally...spring.
My spirit would croon a cacophony of acclaim and adoration to the Living God...if only my vocal cords didn’t perform so terribly out of tune! Still, I want so desperately to thank God for the fulfillment of “the promise,” His vernal verification that Christ has Risen, and with Him, so too all of creation! To that end I share with you a prayer from the pen of one so very much more gifted than the author of this page.

A Prayer in Spring
Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,

And off a blossom in midair stands still

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil


                                               ~Robert Frost

                …let us go about the fulfillment of Spring.




                                   And remember,

                                         He's Coming Back!​
