PLUME DU PASTOR: The great division


Can you believe what is happening before our eyes? We can see the division between fellow Americans, families and friends. In many cases, he was created out of fear when he raised his ugly head. We hear about it every day!

It is suggested that we should report others to the authorities if we suspect that they are causing harm to ourselves or others in our mind. Some may take offense just because someone is not wearing a mask or not being vaccinated. We are not to control others or judge!

With all the affairs of the world, our nation and our surrounding communities facing their own problems, it can become overwhelming. Instead of letting fear affect us and our loved ones, we should get down on our knees and bring all our concerns to our God.

Could we allow “The Great Divide” to consume and destroy everything that this nation was founded on? God was our center even when our Founding Fathers put their own lives in danger by signing the “Declaration of Independence” and our “Constitution” which provided us with freedom within the borders of the United States of America. .

We have seen God removed from schools, removed from most government buildings, and sometimes attempt to remove God from our pledge of allegiance, the words “a nation under God” failing with every attempt. Now the attack has been on American history!

Try now with ‘The Great Divide’ which attacks our lives as we know them. Rather than fear, let us turn to God, uplifting our Nation, our families and our neighbors to God. Let us find peace and rest in the words of Jesus, John 14:27;

“I leave you in peace, I give you my peace; I don’t give you as the world gives. May your heart not be troubled, may it not be afraid. “

Peace to you all!
