Perspective Matthew 24:4-8;36-44 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 We live in a pretty scary world, don’t we? A world divided, at almost every level - into “us” and “them” - good and bad... black and white... But I honestly can’t help but wonder if that’s anything new? Because the Bible itself is filled with such contrasting, opposing motifs... wheat and tares... sheep and goats... day and night... righteous and unrighteous... and our lessons for today are no different.

Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Today is, without doubt... one of the happiest days of the year here at WPPC! A day to celebrate our heritage... and to remember both who and Whose we are... as Presbyterian Christians! It’s also our church’s 180th anniversary! 18 decades of witness and service... 180-years of Reformed faith, professing “Faith alone, Scripture alone, Grace alone, Christ alone, while giving Glory to God alone!” 180-years of celebrating the love, mercy and forgiveness of God in Christ.
