Last Sunday we got dressed up and headed to the big city of Springfield with some old and dear friends who wanted to treat us to lunch at a fine dining establishment, somewhere new to us.

What we found was less of everything with a hefty price. Is fine dining not a choice anymore?  more

People often think of saints as those who are especially holy or officially recognized by the Roman Catholic Church, like St. Christopher or St. Mary. Yet, in the Bible, the term saint has a different meaning. Basically, it means one who is set apart for God’s good purposes. In the New Testament, the Christians in local churches are called saints. In Romans 1:7 the Apostle Paul writes, “To all God’s beloved in Rome, who are called to be saints.” All Christians are saints, not because they never sin or because they are perfect. No, all Christians, while saved by God’s grace in Jesus Christ, are still sinners in need of God’s forgiveness. Yet, all Christians are called to serve God through the power of the Holy Spirit and to live lives consistent with God’s holy character. Let’s live into our calling! “Love the Lord, all you his saints.” Psalm 31:23. May God bless your week! Diane Cooke, Pastor, Presbyterian Churches of Willow Springs and Mtn. View. more
