Charles Spurgeon, “Remember…it is not your hold on Christ that saves you–it is Christ; it is not your joy in Christ that saves you–it is Christ; it is not even your faith in Christ, though that be the instrument–it is Christ’s blood and merits; therefore, look not so much to your hand with which you are grasping Christ, as to Christ; look not to your hope, but to Jesus, the source of your hope; look not to your faith, but to Jesus, the author and finisher of faith. We will never find happiness by looking at our own prayers, our doings, or our feelings; it is what Jesus is, not what we are, that gives rest to the soul.”

Having served as pastor at Lewis and Clark Bible Church, in Astoria, Oregon, for almost 28 years, my wife's cancer diagnosis in January 2017 has resulted in much change. I retired in March 2018. We moved to the small town of Heppner, Oregon--to be near our two grandchildren.
