“Take a Moment” Prayer: Week of April 3

Look for this prayer each week. – Hosanna…hosanna, I cry as I reach out to you today with my heartfelt prayers. Holy week is here and I will walk with you through the memories of the highs and the lows of the events of the week. I confess that my thoughts these days have been consumed by the reality of this pandemic. I am tired of this. I just want it to end. Even as I fuss over this issue…I can’t help but wonder about your feelings throughout Holy Week. Did you think to yourself…”let’s get this over with…I want this to end”? I certainly would not blame you for feeling that way. The joy for you, I am sure, was that you knew your nightmare would end and resurrection would come on the other side of death. Help me this week to remember as I walk with you through your nightmare…that there is the hope and promise of resurrection that comes at the end of my nightmares too…even the current nightmare. Your power and grace will guide me and make it so. You are my amazing Savior without whom I would be lost. Thanks be to God for all he has done through you. Amen.

From Pastor Twyla's Desk - March 2020

I think it was a little over two years ago, after having some blood work done, my doctor warned me in a phone call that my A1C was a bit high and I was pre-diabetic. I wasn’t sure what that meant, but I didn’t like the sound of it.
