From the Pastor's Desk:

Dear St. Paul’s Church Family,

One of the great hymns from the Lutheran tradition is "Built on the Rock the Church doth Stand." Please read these verses for inspiration:

  1. Built on the Rock the church doth stand, even when steeples are falling; crumbled have spires in every land, bells still are chiming and calling, calling the young and old to rest, but above all the soul distrest, longing for rest everlasting.
  1. Surely in temples made with hands, God the Most High, is not dwelling; high above earth His temple stands, all earthly temples excelling. Yet He whom heavens cannot contain chose to abide on earth with men, built in our bodies His temple.

This powerful hymn is based on Ephesians 2, verses 19 through 22. (You can read this too.) Over the centuries churches and cathedrals were built to glorify God and to gather the faithful for worship and fellowship. We claim these buildings as beautiful and we hold them dear to the very end. But the church is the Body of Christ, a spiritual foundation created by God. That being the case, all things are possible with God as we ponder the future of St. Paul's Church.

See you Sunday!

Pastor Todd
