Signs of quitting are everywhere…a half read book placed back on the bookshelf, a car jacked up on blocks rusting away, a diet which was abandoned or a faith that has grown cold. The Christmas story deals with the issue of giving up. Zechariah and Elizabeth were close to giving up in their old age when a surprising event changed everything. Instead their waiting paid off.
In our culture some declare that the Church is no longer relevant. Some proclaim that the Church has no purpose today. Some get disenchanted with the Church and runaway from it. Is the Church no longer needed? Is it going to become extinct in our country? Pastor Fred Steinberg will address these questions on Pentecost Sunday, when we celebrate the birth of the Church.
