From the Desk of Pastor Jason Stitt

February, 2020 


  

     As I sit here and begin to write this message to you I am shocked to hear of the death of NBA great, Kobe Bryant. A tragic situation of a helicopter crash that involved Kobe and his daughter as well as seven other individuals. I was going to write about the love for one another as we observe Valentine’s day in February, but I think it even more important to speak about loving one another because of this tragic event. We have all lost those we hold dear in our lives at some point. Sometimes it was expected and sometimes out of the blue, but it always has left us with a sense of loss and sadness. 

     We cannot change what has happened but we can do something moving forward. As your pastor, I remind you, as Jesus reminds us, as we live, to love one another as yourself. Be it spouse, brother or sister, cousin or distant relative, friend, neighbor or stranger, love one another with all your hearts. Tomorrow is promised to no one and I hope we show the love we wish to be shown to everyone around us. Everyone has a story to be told, no matter what path life has taken. Do not take for granted those paths and experiences. 

     As you know I have been out on a medical leave due to having a foot amputation. Please let me tell you, I am forever grateful for all your prayers, thoughts, cards, words of encouragement and everything in between. Please know, even though there are some difficult days, your love and kindness spurs me on, know that I will be back soon and will continue to work with and for the Lord to love one another and preach the good word. As Jesus said to the invalid man from the Gospel of John, 5:8; “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk!” 

    With all of your love and the love of the Lord, I will be walking again soon. 

    God Bless you all.


Pastor Jason Stitt
