WELCOME TO FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH!

Mission/Vision Statement:

We are the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
where ALL are welcome. We are faith based, following the teachings of Jesus Christ,
and carrying the word to others by serving our community and beyond.

“From my Plate to yours, Something to Chew on”

Something to Chew On, XXXXXIV

In this age of political uncertainty when you hear of conflicting reports of what our leaders are up to, there is one abiding principle that we can apply. We may not fully agree with what has been said. It is then that we need to apply the principle of love and consider the ways in which our love and the love of God can speak far louder and with much more power than what we hear that may go against the grain of the foundation of our belief.

I think first and foremost of the teaching of Jesus when he said, “Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgement you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.” (Matthew 7:1-2, NRSV) He then went on to comparing this to the speck you might see in your neighbor’s eye as opposed to the log that you might have in your own eye.

Often we are too quick to be both the judge and the jury before we have recognized our own selfish thoughts. Let us always remember that love is not angry. Love does not hold a grudge. Rather it looks with kindness and compassion on what others say, do, or believe.

Very shortly, we will be moving into the season of Lent, that forty days prior to Easter, not counting Sundays. I invite you to join us starting just one week from Wednesday with our Ash Wednesday worship. Throughout the season of Lent, I will be focusing on the theme, Captured by Vision.

 

With God’s Love,

 

Pastor Nik
