A Note From Pastor Corey
A Time For Prayer
The recent events in our Nation’s Capitol last week have been the topic of many discussions and cause for grave concern for many of us. As we prepare for the transition of power January 20th with the Presidential Inauguration, warnings of more violence and rioting by extremist have our country on high alert. Many of these extremist are religious extremist, some are conspiracy theorist, and the most dangerous are the white supremacist groups with intentions of causing harm to many people. This threat is real and very dangerous. No matter who you gave your vote too, violence is not the answer, especially in the name of Jesus.
Matthew 5:9 Jesus says, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” We as Christians are to be peacemakers not religious extremist willing to cause harm to people when we don’t get our way. Each of us can be a catalyst of peace within our own circles, this includes our social media accounts as well. Our words matter, so we must choose our words wisely and with caution, because they can bring peace or they can ignite a fire.
I’m asking each of you to refrain from destructive social media conversations and to pray. Pray for peace, pray that there’s no violence, and pray that God heals our land and restore reverence. Those of us who claim Christ as our Lord and Savior have a responsibility to do the right thing and to speak truth to power in love, with respect, and integrity. we are called to stand for what’s right. Please do it in a way that brings honor to Christ, the Church, and yourself.
