Sermon Summary: Pastor Stanley shared words for us to consider as we review and pursue a life in support of the Lord's Prayer. Questions raised when we consider those words are many. We encourage all to review those words and to ponder them in regard to your thoughts and actions as you pursue your faith journey. If you would like to discuss any questions or aspects on this further, please know that you can reach out to Pastor Stanley directly or via our website.

And remember: Many think that when God comforts us, our troubles should go away. But if that were always so, people would turn to God only out of a desire to be relieved of pain and not out of love for Him. We must understand that being "comforted" can also mean receiving strength, encouragement and hope to deal with our troubles. The more we sufffer, the more comfort God gives us. If you are overwhelmed, allow God to comfort you. Know that every trial you endure will help you comfort other people who are suffering similar troubles.
