During the New Year let us resolve to:

  • put Christ before my church or any secondary allegiances we may have in community.
  • put the spiritual before the material, and the eternal before the temporal.
  • put God’s word before the opinions of others, regardless of how close they may be to me in my journey in life.
  • put Jesus before all of my inclinations, thoughts, and practices in life.
  • constantly be in prayer, not only in my times of need but in my natural discourse in living.
  • put Jesus before all other teacher, so I may walk more by faith and not by sight.
  • live, in order to give, not to get.
  • strive, the Lord being my helper, to walk humbly with the Lord each day, moment by moment.
  • put more of the Lord Jesus into what I do, and less of me.

Blessings to all at this Christmas time.

To Let Go Takes Love

To Let Go Takes Love
by Dr. Margaret J. Rinck

Several people expressed interest in the poem by
Margaret J. Rinck, used in last week’s message. Here it is:

To “let go” does not mean that I stop caring; it means that I
cannot do it for someone else.
To “let go” does not cut myself off, it is the realization that I
can’t control another.
To “let go” is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural
consequences.
To “let go” is to admit powerlessness, which means the
outcome is out of my hands. It is in God’s hands.
To “let go” is not to change or blame another, it is to make the
most of myself.
To “let go” is not to care for, but to care about.
To “let go” is not to fix but to be supportive.
To “let go” is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human
being.
To “let go” is not to be in the middle making arrangements for
all outcomes, but to allow others to effect their own destinies.
To “let go” is not to be protective, it is to permit another to
face reality.
To “let go” is not to deny, but to accept.
To “let go” is not to nag, scold, or argue, but instead search out
my own short comings and correct them.
To “let go” is not to adjust everything to my own desires, but
to take each day as it comes, and cherish myself in it.
To “let go” is not to criticize and regulate anyone, but to try to
become what I dream I can be under God’s guidance.
Blessings to you and yours this week
Pastor Leon Langille
