Meditation
Welcome to our services today. PASTORS AT THE HELM Parishes are holy ships, whose curates are the pilots, and eternity the port which they must guide them to. If it need so much art and long experience to sail upon the seas, what knowledge and prudence does it call for, to pass over, happily, the sea of this world, where tempest never cease! Alas! who can think, without sensible grief and bitter tears, that the helm of these vessels, contain such precious wares as cost no less than the blood of Jesus Christ, should be committed ordinarily, to men of so little experience, that they are not only ignorant of the tempests, shelves, and banks of this terrible sea, but even have not strength and industry to guide their own little vessel back to the road again! And these inestimable riches are frequently entrusted to those whom they will not trust with their own purse of fifteen or twenty pieces. And when the pilots are able, who would not even then lose their courage to see themselves sailing amidst so many hazards, and with so little success! How many stupid ones fall out of the vessel! How many imprudent ones get out sailing apart in the shallows! How many desperate ones throw themselves over, and abandon themselves to the fury of the waves! What disquiets, what grief, and what trouble for a poor pilot! He must run out on all sides to reach out his hand to those that fall. He must exhaust his lungs, in trying to call those who flee away. He must even frequently throw himself into the sea, to recover those whom the waves swallow up. If he watches not, the fall of the first will be imputed to him. If he be silent, he will have to answer for flight of the second. If he fears labor and travail, he will be accused of others despair. If, in a word, he lacks diligence, strength, and courage, he will be guilty of as much bloodshed as he lets souls perish. Entreaties All that we are, and all that we have, Unto the Lord we owe; Our health, our wealth, our friends, our powers, It pleased Him to bestow. We may abuse these gifts Divine, To us in kindness given, And live forgetful that this life Must end in hell or heaven. But oh, the solemn hour will come, When all, account must give, Of how, as moments hurried on, We tried on earth to live. If you would like to know more about our congregation, please speak with a pastor or elder.

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:3
