The Pastor’s Perspective
An Occasional Note Regarding Activities, News, Rumors, and Juicy Tidbits from Pastor Pat
December 23, 2020
It’s a Boy!
You may remember that, in a previous issue, we informed you that we are going to be grandparents again. Our daughter and son-in-law are expecting their first child in May (on or around Mothers’ Day), and the latest ultrasound revealed that it is a boy! While we would be happy with either gender, we are delighted that we can focus on boys’ clothing and names!
We Need a Tenant!
Our previous tenants have moved to larger offices, and our rental space is now vacant! There are three main offices, a reception area, and an open area that will be perfect for just the right organization/business! If you know of someone who is looking for 1300 square feet, please have them call our agent at 775-386-9727 and inquire. We are hoping that “word of mouth” will expedite the rental process! Can you help us?
Words of the Day:
Deedy Industrious or effective.
Deglutition The action or process of swallowing.
I hope that this holiday season gives you ample opportunity for deedy deglutition!
Christmas Eve Service at 5:30

“Our impairments, our disabilities, our handicaps are not accidents. They are God-designed. He creates every one of our flaws for his own good. God’s way of dealing with them is not to remove them but to endow them with strength and utilize them for good.
Paul said of his handicap: ‘Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, Paul concluded, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses…For when I am weak, then I am strong.’ (2 Corinthians 12:8-10)—David Roper
Have a wonderful Christmas!
