Pastor's Letter May
Expect to Be Surprised
“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place” (Acts 2:1). It is a prayerful hope of mine that when Pentecost arrives, all of us who call ourselves St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church would be together in one place – most likely in the sanctuary of the building located at 445 Old Post Road in Edison, just off Route 1.
Grace to you and peace in the name of Jesus, the bright morning star, the first, the last, the one who was, who is and who is to come. Amen.
Last weekend I bought a step edger. I had just planted a small blueberry patch, and I wanted to clear the area of grass, put down some mulch and put up some netting. I started to outline the area with the edger. I had no problem with the first side, but when I turned the corner, I hit a root or something and my new edger bent at the base where it attaches to the handle. It wasn’t broken, just bent. It’s still useful; it gets the job done, but it’s disheartening because right off the shelf, it’s bent. I suppose there’s a warranty, and I will see if I can get a new one, but it got me wondering if there’s anything around us that doesn’t eventually break.
