Rev. Moon’s Message for July 2, 2023

Dear friends,

“William Wordsworth” (1842) by British painter Benjamin Haydon (1786–1846); from the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London; taken from the Wikimedia Commons.

What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind

William Wordsworth’s “Splendor in the Grass

I believe faith is what empowers us to find strength in what remains behind. Faith is what allows us to move forward without looking back. Faith is what allows us to go on despite all our challenges. May God give us strength during this week.

—Rev. Chuck Moon
