“Cast all your cares on God for God cares for you.” (I Peter 5:7)
As we go through difficult times, it is good to know that we can cast our cares on God for God cares for us. Some people think God is someplace else – off somewhere in his holy temple. That is not the message of Jesus. One consistent message from the Scriptures and from Jesus’ teaching is God is with us. Jesus gave us one abiding promise: “Lo, I am with you to the end of the age.” As we live through ups and downs of life, let’s keep the message of hope: “God cares for us, so we can cast our cares on Him. We are never alone.

The Apostle Paul had a special relationship with the Christians at Philippi. That relationship encouraged him to write: “I thank my God for you in all my prayers from the first day until now.”In the original Greek, it is clear that Paul is writing about a partnership. Each person in the church is using his or her God given gifts to build up the church. As pastor of the Maine Presbyterian Church, I have experienced what Paul is referring to. We have a partnership in ministry. We are a small church, but our size does not prevent us from carrying out the mission God has given us right where we are in the middle of lakes country.
The heart of our church is sharing the love God has given each of us. Each individual is important and respected. We seek to love each other and encourage each other to live out the love of God. You are welcome in our church. Whoever you might be and whatever situation you find yourself in, you are welcome.
God bless you.

How many hopeful messages have you heard lately? We know that we live in a time when many people are struggling with keeping hope alive. We also know that without hope, we can accomplish very little and bad will go to worse.So, as we live through difficult times, what brings us hope? The daily situations in the world will change. Our lives change, but our faith is based on some unchangeable truths. The greatest truth of all in the Christian faith is we celebrate Easter. It is not just one day but every day.
Paul wrote these hope-filled words:
“For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time.” (I Corinthians 15:3)
Paul wanted us to remember that our faith is based on truth – both believed and observed truth. Jesus Christ is the one who has overcome death and all the trappings of death. He is the one who can bring us real hope. A hope that is alive now and will see us into eternity.
I encourage everyone to share the hopeful message of Easter with your friends, neighbors and family. May we all be witnesses to hope that is rooted in the unchangeable truth of God’s word.
Thank you for your partnership in ministry,
