Pastor's Letter to the Church

Dear Church,


    It’s snowing again! Boo! Hiss! And on top of it, it’s 10 degrees! Isn’t 10 degrees too cold to snow? However, we need to remember that we are on the downhill side of February, so spring will soon be upon us! YAY!

 

    As we have traversed this past 11 months, we have experienced so much. On the TV news, they have often used the words, “unprecedented times”. Indeed they are! In fact, all times are unprecedented, we’ve never been through them before. Yes, Covid in the mix has certainly changed our normal, however, let’s think about the things you have seen in your lives that made them unprecedented. Perhaps you are old enough to remember outhouses, radio shows, church suppers being the best social function around. Perhaps you remember getting your first TV, and then first color TV. Who remembers seeing OZ the first time in color? It was unprecedented! And magical! Where were you on July 20, 1969? Holy Cats! Man walking on the moon was absolutely unprecedented! For those that may be younger, remember your first video game system? How was that possible that those little people were in that little box? And then how can any of us forget September 11, 2001? Unprecedented, unfathomable, terrifying!

    For me, a child of the 1960’s, it seems that every day has been unprecedented as technology has moved at lightning speed in my lifetime. It’s been pretty cool to watch. But do you know what hasn’t been cool to watch? The way our world has lost the need for Jesus. When I was a child, everyone went to church, now, even before Covid, the numbers are unprecedented, unfathomable, terrifying! According to Statista.com, a survey was taken early in 2020 found that 24% of people attend worship every week, 25% attend SELDOM, and 29% attend NEVER.

Now you and I both know that attending church doesn’t make you a Christian, however, it does help you to continue your relationship with the Lord. I do not know all the answers on how to make disciples, but in looking at those survey numbers, I can see that for every one of you who attend Trinity to worship, there are two people out there who SELDOM or NEVER attend. UNPRECEDENTED!

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

AMEN Church.

Love,

 

 


Pastor Denise
