Greetings from President Todd Nicholson
Joshua 10:25 says, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the Lord will do to all the enemies you are going to fight.”
Change. Some people like change while others despise it. Change can be very frightening and can cause a lot of stress in our lives. But it can also be a chance at new beginnings and opportunities.
With the departure of Pastor Ben, we at St. Mark find ourselves in another time of change. While we wish him nothing but the best in his new adventure, we are left behind to deal with the change. It may be frightening for some of us. It may be discouraging. But as Joshua emphasizes, let us not be afraid or discouraged but be strong and courageous! Know that the Lord has much bigger plans for St. Mark Lutheran Church than we could ever imagine. He will be right here by our side to fight all the enemies that may come our way. Matthew 19:26…. “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
