In the Meantime

Dear Parishioners,

In the Meantime... So what does it mean to live in the meantime? It means many things, depending on where you are in life’s journey and what you believe life’s circumstances are calling from you. If we believe as Daniel and Jesus believed that heaven and earth will one day pass away (Daniel 12:1-3; Hebrews 10:11-14, 18; Mark 13:24-32); if we believe there is coming a day when days will be no more and God's Kingdom will be our great hope and home, then we believe what we do and how we live matters in the meantime.

Be of good courage. See with eyes of faith that God’s coming Kingdom is as certain as green leaves in the spring time opening up from tiny buds. And in the meantime, as we await that coming day, be a person celebrating life and living your faith. For when you do, you bear witness to this age that a new day is coming in God's Kingdom.
