Pastor's annual report


It is that time of year when things begin again. I guess you could call it “new life.”

I have learned to be cautious when I think of new beginnings because for the Christian, they come with the baptismal idea of a death to bring about new life.

Just as Jesus dies and rises, we die with Christ and rise to new life with Him in our baptism. Daily new beginnings; how welcome they can be!
