MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR

A letter from our Pastor… October 2020

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. - The words of Jesus from Matthew 5:4

There are a lot of words that we would use to chacterize these past several months. We have even learned some new words that we did not even know before, like "pandemic" or "social distancing" or "novel." But if I had to come up with one word to describe how I have felt over these past days and months, it would be "mournful." There has been so much to mourn over these past months. We mourn the things that we have missed: graduations, birthday parties, large gatherings, anniversaries, sports, fellowship, memorials. We mourn and miss the things that we have lost: jobs, friends, loved ones, a sense of normalcy. As I reflect on the loss of my beloved Nanny, I cannot feel anything but sorrow and mourning. Sometimes I think that I should not feel that way, that I should simply feel joy that she is is not suffering or in pain or feel glad that her burden has finally been lifted. But all that I can feel is sorrow and mourning.

     This year has been a year of mourning for all of us. Maybe, we feel like we should not feel sorrow and mourning but should look at all the positive. The scriptures are full of people who were hurting and sorrowfull yet God does not condemn them for feeling sad or hurt. In fact, Jesus himself, when he learned of the death of his dear friend, wept. We must feel the sadness, the mourning, the loss. For there is a promise from the lips of Jesus: Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted (Matt. 5:4). In the morning and sadness of this year, we must rest in his promise that we shall be comforted. 

 

 

 




BACK TO SCHOOL WITH FLOK
