Pastoral Epistle – June, 1, 2023
Beloved Congregation,Greetings in Jesus!
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock”. Matthew 7:24
We are encouraged by God to hear His voice and follow His commands. When we obey His commands we will be wise and our life will be built on the Rock. Jesus himself is the Rock of ages.
We had a wonderful time at our Clergy Conference. Thank you to everyone who prayed for me. The theme was: Living into God’s love. It was nice to meet many of my colleagues after a long time.
