At this time our world is in crisis. We join with all of you as we reach out to God for peace, protection, healing and comfort. Let us remember the powerful words of scripture...
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
God is our refuge and strength. An ever-present help in times of trouble.
The Lord is my light and salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid?
Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Your faithful promises are our armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
Cast your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
So let us stay strong and be of good cheer. This too shall pass!
