We are living in a strange and challenging time; there is no denying that.  And yet over the centuries God’s people have passed through many extremely difficult times and have drawn upon the Scriptures for hope, guidance, and strength.  For our text this week, I have chosen one of the true classics of our faith tradition, the 23rd Psalm.  I will share my thoughts with you on the passage this weekend with a video message titled, Through the Dark Valleys.  In preparation for hearing God’s Word, and as a personal devotion time, I invite you to read it daily.  Read it slowly and meditatively, pondering each line, taking in the rich imagery as food for your soul.  “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for God, you are with me!”

peace, Ernie
