Pastor's Ponderings

From the “other” coast

We came to the East coast to deliver Matthew to his new church.  It has been an exciting thing to do.  He has a very welcoming new church, Scotchtown Presbyterian Church. (The new pastor will have to get a web site up soon so I can give you a link!)  I am very excited for him, and for them.  I think this is God’s place for him.  His new church is beautiful and the people I have met so far are very caring and welcoming people.

The adventure has included trying to get things set up for Matthew.  A trip to the bank revealed that you cannot get a checking account without proving residence.  And how do you do that?  It is far from easy to get it all settled, the new driver’s license, the new bank account, the new bed ….   what a lot of things there are to do!

This has all made me think of another Father who sent his Son to a group of human’s struggling to do God’s work.  God sent his only begotten Son … and his reason was love for us.  Do we sufficiently appreciate his love for us?

For God so loved the world that he gave his only son …. that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

One thought on “From the “other” coast

  1. Dear Friends —
    We have chose your church building as a destination in the Destiny Riders 2013 “Steeplechase”. This is a fundraiser for our Tacoma chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association. Every year we list 20 churches from across Washington state. Participants ride to these churches throughout the year and take a photo with their bike. Each photo earns an entry in drawings for various prizes at the annual banquet. This is to benefit a local charity, as well as to help support our ministries to prisoners, homeless veterans, a street feed, etc.
    We have come to love this “Steeplechase” as it gets us off the interstates and main highways into the most scenic and unfrequented parts of the state. We choose churches based on location, appearance, historicity, etc. It is an ideal way to see the rich Christian heritage of our land, have opportunity to meet our brothers and sisters from various denominations , and encourage and pray for them. It makes a great topic of conversation at rest stops and gas stations, an easy way to open topics of a spiritual nature.
    We pray God’s blessing upon your church . If you have any questions regarding our Steeplechase, please contact us (information below). Thank you.
    Randy & Susan Hayes
