    Some food for thought

    Food for Thought

    As I reflect on this blog, I was wondering what to call it?  In discussion with other staff at a meeting last week, everyone agreed that ‘Pastor Ed’s Blog’ is too generic.  It was suggested that since I have a love for the land, and I have a farming background, I could call it something in line with an agricultural theme. Thus, my little ‘blog’ will be called ‘Some food for thought’.
     
    In this time of Lent, we are encouraged to reflect on what God has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ. The kidzone (Sunday School) classes under the direction of Kidz Zone leader Sonia Brule, are learning to memorize John 3: 16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
     
    In preparation for Good Friday and Easter, remember that we are loved to such an extent that nothing in this life, not even death itself can separate us from the Love of God!
     
    The time of Lent helps us to remember the Amazing Grace of God! Lent gives us ‘Some Food for thought’ encouraging us to live each day as God’s precious and loved children.
