Message from Rev. Danielson – February 2016

Welcome to the month of February! Congratulations, date-wise as I write, we are halfway through the Winter without a major snow storm! But yes, I know, it’s not over until it’s over.

Let me take this opportunity to commend you as a congregation for your commitment to the Lord here at Starkdale during this important time of transition from one pastor to another. It is not easy or comfortable to go from the known to the unknown. Yet, I praise you for the wonderful spirit in which you are working together. Attendance is excellent. Patience and trust in your leaders is admirable. Keep them in your prayers!

May I also commend you for your commitment to the Word of God. You clearly evidence a genuine desire to know and understand the Bible. Nothing pleases this pastor more or makes his ministry a joy than to see your hunger for the Scriptures.

Yes, there is need for structure and programs, for out-reach and care ministries. But in it all, keep falling in love with Jesus.  Keep your faith growing and He will bless beyond all you can ask or think.

Rev. Paul Danielson
