From the Pastor's Desk
Brothers and Sisters In Christ,
Choices must be made, decisions must thought out, lots must be cast, tasks must be completed; these are the substance of our everyday lives. Each choice, each decision, each task results in us standing where the two roads diverge into the yellow wood and sorry us cannot travel both. Each road takes us to a different place. Each road takes us by a different route. Each road takes us with different traveling companions. Each road takes us on a different walking surface. Each road takes us for different purposes. Therefore, we cannot walk both roads, because both paths diverge.
Such is the way of God and the way of the world. The two ways diverge. The two ways take us to two different places; one to life, one to death. The two ways take us by a different route; one by cross, one by stuff. The two ways take us with different traveling companions; one with Christ, one with ourselves. The two ways take us on different surfaces; one with hardship, one with ease. The two ways take us for different purposes; one for others, one for self. The two ways diverge and we as Christians cannot travel both.
We must chose every moment which path to take, the way of God or the way of the world, because we cannot walk upon both. To leave the way of God is to take the way of the world, to leave the way of the world is to take the way of God. Those who take the path of God are like trees planted by streams of water for the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. We must chose every moment which path to take, because we cannot tread upon them both.
Daniel Frank's Prayer
May the Holy Spirit fill your minds
And release you from those evil binds
That contain us and stop us from loving God
Let Christ be seen, not through a facade
But in your church and in your lives
Love the Lord that strives
To live in your hearts forevermore
And flow over you like waves on a shore
So love the Lord your God deeply
And do not turn away so sheeply
That you miss God's love
Like just another morning dove
So go now with the Father's Word
And fly in the sky with God's herd
Of loving, following Christians
