Note from PJ – July 24
As you get outdoors today, would you take a moment to pause and look for 20 seconds into the sky and reflect on one of our Scripture passages today, Psalm 36.
Your unfailing love, Lord is as vast as the heavens;
Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
Your justice like the ocean depths…
How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
The wonders of nature reflect the character of God. If you struggle to remember to lift your eyes on a regular basis, having a Bible reading plan can help! Whatever emotional ups and downs or challenges we may encounter, we know that we are loved by our Heavenly Father more than we could ever comprehend.
Another way we seek God’s perspective is in trusting his provision for Grace. Thank you for the way you demonstrate faithfulness in your giving. Isn’t it amazing to think that God does more in the world with our 10% than we could ever manage with 90%?

Each week in my emails, we share in grief and celebration with one another. We remember both those who have lost loved ones and families that are welcoming new life. For each of these circumstances, we go to God, asking for His perfect peace to reign over homes and hearts.
Looking at the skies with gratitude,
– Pastor Jonathan Schaeffer
