Pastor Paul's Paragraphs - August 2015

Jesus said to him, "If you are able, all things can be done for the one who believes". Immediately, the father of the child cried out, "I believe; help my unbelief".... Mark 9:24

Maybe you know this, but every Sunday I write a holy letter (a sermon) to you and Jesus. The process begins on the previous Sunday afternoon, when I read the coming scriptures on the Lectionary calendar, such as the one listed above.

I read the Holy Word several times, and listen to what the Lord God is trying to get through to me. I read the Word again and again, and start writing.

I write as fast as I can, not paying too much attention to the details, working as hard as I can on the sense of what the writer two thousand years ago was trying to tell us about a parent crying out about his child. Read More..........

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rain fall soft upon your field;
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
