Pastor's Message

From the Desk of Reverend Carl Pelzer


  

     During the past month, we’ve all seen countless pictures of the devastation caused by hurricane Florence as it ravaged our East Coast, as well as the damage done in the Far East by the typhoon that hit there. All sorts of images remain with us…of the fierce power of the storms as waves wash ashore…of toppled tress and buildings …of flooded streams and rivers. 

     The image that sticks in my mind is that of one of the victims of that storm, standing in the midst of what had been her home…with neighboring structures and all landmarks gone…with no real frame of reference as to where she is…or what has happened. She stands, looking lost - without hope - thoroughly defeated by events beyond her control. 

     Few of us ever are subjected to such storms…or such devastation. Few of us lose everything we own or cherish. Based on those two statements, we might assume that it would be difficult to know how they feel. I think, though, that most of us know the feeling well. We simply experience our losses in different ways, but have similar feelings of loneliness and despair. Such feelings may come as the result of a death in the family – illness – the loss of a job – any of a thousand things that leave us feeling lost and alone. We may think to ourselves “no one understands how feel – how I hurt” …but most of us DO understand.

     The hurricane victim’s plight was obvious. The despair felt by individuals is less obvious, and might be overlooked. However, there is help - comfort – and reassurance available right here in the fellowship…the family…of St. Paul. Part of our task as Christians is to minister to each other. There is no need for anyone to stand alone in the midst of desolation or despair. Together, we can face any challenge and can offer the support and comfort of God’s presence.

     Be aware of the needs around you, and reach out at Christ’s servants so that no one stands alone in their time of need.
