Give justice to the weak and the orphan;
maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute.

FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

PASTOR'S WEEKLY THOUGHTS

 

The savage slaughter of people shopping for school clothes at an El Paso Walmart on Saturday morning and then at 1:00 am in a popular entertainment location in downtown Dayton, Ohio has shocked and horrified many of us. We wonder how things have gone so wrong in our country that our own young men would act in such a way. The news media have spent hours trying to assign blame. But our scripture for this week from Isaiah 1 warns even those of us who regularly worship God to look in another direction. This is what Jill Duffield, editor of The Presbyterian Outlook, has to say.

"But those seeking to mature in Christ don't point fingers. They take a long, difficult look at themselves. They light their lamps and attempt not to flinch when they see all that the light of their Lord reveals, not only about the world, but about the one in the mirror. Such honest spiritual examination renders us potentially ready for a meeting with the Son of Man, no matter the hour of his return. When we heed the prophet's warning, we make way for transformation, we ask God to wash us and make us clean."

Jill Duffield, editor of The Presbyterian Outlook

We will be celebrating the Lord's Supper this Sunday. Come join us for a preview of the feast we will enjoy in the world to come. "People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God." Luke 13:29
