From the Pastor
Grace and peace in the name of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We will be honoring our graduating seniors this Sunday. They are Avery Mangioni, Ashlynn Randazzo and Sterling Savant. This is Trinity Sunday. I will make my annual attempt to explain the Trinity in a clear, easily-understood manner that is relevant to our daily living. That really is my intent. And some people tell me that I am successful in achieving my goals. The sermon will be entitled, Which God?, Psalm 8.
Love in Christ, Wesley
Rules for Living
Write Notes to Yourself
In the movie, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Bill and Ted are two high school students who discover a way of time travel in a telephone booth. They travel into the future and discover several problems awaiting them. They realize that if they make certain changes at strategic points in their lives they can change their futures. So, they write notes to themselves and leave those notes in places where they will find them at the right time. The result is that they have a great future. We can’t write notes to ourselves from the future, but we can write notes to ourselves in the future. I know that there are things I need to remember to do in the days ahead, but will forget to do. So, I write notes to myself. Sometimes when I write those notes to my future self, I wonder how I will feel about my past self for leaving those instructions for me. I may not be too happy about it. But I trust I will be grateful to myself.
