Rev. Don Hamer Message May 10, 2023

Dear Siblings in Christ,

In this mornings lesson from Acts of the Apostles, Peter is addressing a group of gentile Athenians.  He notes that in one of their many altars, there is an inscription “To An Unknown God.” Peter grasps the opportunity to supply an identity to the “Unknown God.” “What therefore you worship as unknown,” he says, “this I proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it, he who is Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by human hands . . . he himself gives to all mortals life and breath and all things. . . For in him we live and move and have our being.” It is worth pondering, “How can Jesus fill those empty spaces in our lives? How can Jesus provide meaning and substance where it seems to be missing?”

I will be away this coming weekend officiating the wedding of Debbie’s niece, Paris and her fiancée Mike in New Jersey. I ask your prayers for them as they enter their new life as a married couple. We are blessed to welcome The Rev. Philip Bjornberg as our celebrant – I know you will give him a warm St. James’ welcome!   AND, you will be blessed with the preaching of Gail Lebert. Have a blessed week!

Your brother in Christ, Don+
