God's gift of grace in Christ; 

not your own doing."

Latest NewsLetters at Grace


From the desk of Pastor David,

Well, there’s more bad news from the “Decline of Civilization” file. It is being reported that the repopulation rate (births minus deaths) is in freefall throughout much of the Western world. Experts believe some of the reasons are environmental. Pesticides, plastics, and radiation from an explosion of electronic devices have all contributed to a decline in fertility. But there are societal factors too. Social media platforms give people lots of connections, but no real friends. And young men and women are delaying or even foregoing marriage to pursue their careers. The repopulation rates of most of the West are all below the rate necessary to grow, or even hold steady, their existing populations. That means they are in decline. The only exception and bright spot is the continent of Africa where fertility rates are exploding. Is it any coincidence that the growth of Christianity in Africa is exploding too? Hmmmmm.

The decision to delay or forego marriage is particularly discouraging from a Christian perspective. God gave us marriage for procreation, for companionship, and to model His love for us in the form of families. Christian marriages are by no means perfect, but you can always spot one by the selfless love shown by husbands and wives for each other and for their children. I have noticed that trait here at Grace particularly among those of you who have been married 30, 40, even 50 years or longer. As we age, the mind might stay sharp, but this tent called our bodies takes its natural course and begins to deteriorate, and we find ourselves needing therapies, treatments, and replacement parts, often leaving us temporarily or even permanently incapacitated.

And these are the times and situations where I have seen real love kick in. It’s no fun sitting at someone’s bedside 24/7, and no mere friend would ever do that for us. But those spouses who have honored their commitment to love “in sickness and in health” are a perfect and shining representation of God’s promise to care for us throughout eternity. May our God continue to bless each and every one of you.

Pastor David
