    Thank you Rev. Harrison. I also give thanks to God for the many people serving in vocation within and without the church, to the Glory of God, and in love for their neighbor. Including many fine journalists, and reporters who play a role in binding our society together, often facing hardship, slander, harsh criticism, persecution, danger, discomfort, separation from loved ones, long hours, and threats to their own health and safety all in an effort to keep the public informed and in the nature of a free press our government accountable. I see the good of community working through social media, even in these trying times. Let us follow Jesus and love one another indeed!

  3. Daniel says:

    Well said Pastor. I agree 100%. None of us know when God plans to end this crazy world, but the current situation sure makes it seem near the end!
