Hello everyone! While the calendar doesn’t say it, it is definitely feeling like summer here in Bennet! The ‘typical’ summer weather with hot, windy, humid and then storms. That’s pretty much the normal routine. Recently our church, along with the community; have lost many people. None of us know when God will call us to our eternal home with him and Jesus Christ, but there are times in all of our lives that it seems to happen many at the same time. All of those that have passed had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and are now living a new life, which one day all of us will be embracing and celebrating together. While we do mourn and are saddened by the loss of family and friends, there also is a time of celebrating. We celebrate the life they lived on earth and everything that they were able to do and also celebrate that they have an eternal life, free of any earthly restraints or concerns. While none of us want to ever say goodbye and we miss those who have gone before us, we are thankful for the time we were able to share with them and also for the foundation they laid for us as people and more importantly as Christians. We recently had Memorial Day, but for many people they remember their loved-ones every day. As Christians, we remember, embrace, and love Jesus Christ every day. We have the lives we have because of what God did for us through Jesus Christ. God is the ultimate Father of all of us and especially since he gave to the world his one and only child. Jesus knows us and knows all of our feelings, for it is him through God that helped us understand what emotions and feelings are. We are coming upon Independence Day, there are many people over hundreds and thousands of years that have helped us obtain the freedoms we have today, not only the freedoms of this country, but also the freedoms to believe and worship Jesus Christ. So, as we approach July 4th, let us not only thank and remember our country’s forefathers, but also our Christian forefathers and foremothers for all the work and the strong foundation that we stand on today. Blessings to you all; now and always.

In spirit, Rev. Darin
