From the Vicar
Love to the Loveless Shown
It is easy to love that which is good. It is not easy to love that which is evil. In Romans 5, Paul tells us that God showed us His love while we were enemies of God. We became unrighteous by the fall of Adam and were evil in God's sight. But God showed His love for us by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on our behalf, replacing our wickedness and unrighteousness with the righteousness of Christ. He no longer sees the rebellious people that we are under Adam, but He sees us instead as those clothed with the righteousness of Christ.

As we say in Africa, "The cow without tail, it is God who drives his flies away." The condition is still extremely critical as I not only have to make up the very large deficit in my funding account, but I also have to raise the necessary funds for the next fiscal year which starts July 2017.
If you have suggestions about things that you'd like to see in the Memorial Messenger, please let the office staff know. We would love to hear from you.

Sincerely,
Rev. Dr. Scott R. Murray
