The Pastor’s Corner

Our pastor Cecil Chambers is progressing nicely but still has a way to go for full recovery.  He has been able to come to the office for a few hours this week. He extends his thanks and appreciation to you for the beautiful cards, gifts and especially your prayers during his recuperation from the auto accident.

He is happy with the way you have all worked together to make for a good advent season at the church.   Your fine Christmas spirit is a blessing.

Thanks to the deacons for contacting your families to share news of the advent programs; to Rick, Beth and the choir for presenting the beautiful music of the season that prepares us for celebration of the Christ Child’s birth; to all of you who have given poinsettia and to the flower committee for the lovely decorating of our sanctuary; to the hospitality committee for the delicious Christmas breakfast; to the Sunday School for the generous gifts to the staff.

Together let us look forward to a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Pauline for Cecil

Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, wrote the following some 2000 years ago:

The Six Mistakes of Man


  1. The delusion that personal gain is made by crushing others.
  2. The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected.
  3. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it.
  4. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences.
  5. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind, and not acquiring the habit of reading and studying.
  6. Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
