Happy Spring Greetings to you all! It most certainly has changed seasons, finally! The grass is green, flowers and trees are blooming, and in contrast to what the popular Christmas song says; this might be the most wonderful time of the year.  The spring truly brings a real sense of newness! Not only with Jesus Christ overcoming death and ascending into heaven with God the Father, but also many people experience new things.  A lot of people have graduated or will here in the next few weeks and that is wonderful milestone.  On behalf of the entire congregation we send out our congratulations and blessings upon all of those that have completed a step in their education.  However, as Christians, our education never ends, at least it shouldn’t.  Nowhere in the Bible does it say ‘you have learned enough or all you can,’ we need to continue to be focused and diligent in our reading scripture and also listening and talking to God every day.  God wants all of us to be in an engaged relationship with him and Jesus Christ.  For all of you that have ever graduated, you didn’t receive that diploma or degree by not doing any work.  It requires you doing, at times, a lot of work.  Being a Christian is the same way if not even more.  God doesn’t stop working for and loving us, we can’t either.  I have graduated three times, and each step got a little harder; life as Christians can parallel that, we may think we know what the Bible says, but then when we read or re-read, it says something new or different or we may think about it in a different and quite possibly a refreshing way.  We often learn something new every day, let’s try and learn something, maybe new about God and being a Christian every day, I’m quite certain it won’t hurt nor do you have to spend an entire night ‘cramming’ for a final.  If we continue to be in a relationship with Jesus Christ and God, when the ‘final exam’ does come, we will ace it without doubt. Take care and God Bless!

In spirit, Rev. Darin
