Greetings in Christ Jesus

Life can be frustrating at times.  It has now been a year since we discontinued our Senior weekly gatherings.  Another year of life has passed by us.  COVID-19 is the culprit.  Some of us have adjusted to a weekly Zoom meeting.  We had The Imposition of Ashes. We are learning from the Prophet Daniel.  We are using the Lenten season to apply Daniel to the present.  All Seniors are invited to join us.  It is still uncertain if we can meet in person during Holy Week.  The vaccinations are not advancing fast enough.  Check your Sunday bulletin for updates.

The world seems to be in disarray.  Iran is asserting itself.  China is persecuting Christians.  Our government is proposing dangerous changes in our values.  As Christians, we need to be  active in standing up for Jesus.  In Luke 12:8-9 Jesus says: “I tell you. Whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge him before the Angels of God.” The Lenten season gives opportunity to strengthen our trust in Jesus.  I pray that God will bless you with His love.

In Christ’s Love,

Pastor Rich

Hi Gang,

I look forward to getting together again.  I am skinny due to the lack of PJ!!  I am also lonely. The Senior Center is eerie, so quiet.  In spite of the fact, we still can smile.

A young man was shopping in the Market when he noticed an old lady following him. He ignored her, but at checkout, she was in front of him.  She told him he looked like her son who recently died.  He said he was sorry.  He asked if there was anything he could do for her.  She said yes, as I am leaving can you say “Goodbye Mother,” that would make me feel better.  Sure he said.  As the old woman was leaving, he called out, “Goodbye Mother.”  As he got ready to pay he noticed his bill was $125.00.  He said, how can this be? I only bought a few items.  Your mother said you would pay for her, said the clerk.

  • I want to live my next life backwards.
  • Your secrets are safe with your friends because they cannot remember them either.
  • You know more about prescription drugs than your pharmacist.
  • My memory is not as sharp as it used to be.  Also my memory is not as sharp as it. Used to be.
  • Forget the health foods, I need all the preservatives I can get.
  • When you fall down, you wonder what you can do while you are there.

Enough for now.  Check me out next month.
