Welcome to Pastor Kevin's Blog

This quote expresses well my thoughts and hopes as I begin this blog, and the potential of our website:
"Henry David Thoreau wrote in Walden that 'We are in great haste to construct a magnetic telegraph from Maine to Texas; but Maine and Texas, it may be, have nothing important to communicate....We are eager to tunnel under the Atlantic and bring the old world some weeks nearer to the new; but perchance the first news that will leak through into the broad, flapping American ear will be that the Princess Adelaide has the whooping cough.' Critics of the modern mass media culture made possible by the vast network of wires might consider Thoreau’s derisive pessimism prescient, but it is worth remembering that our knit-together world makes possible not just frivolity, but fellowship; not just entertainment, but enlightenment; not just global fear and terror, but peace and good will toward men." (1)
My prayer is that here we will be able to share fellowship in Christ, and the enlightenment and fruits of his Spirit.
