Faith and Life -- a new column from local faith leaders

Fallon’s faith leaders offer their thoughts on faith and life is this space.
Faith and Life -- a new column from local faith leaders

Once a month or so, Fallon's faith leaders will offer their thoughts on faith and life in this space. Any church or faith community of any kind is welcome and encouraged to participate. We have room for just a few in each column, and so we will publish in a rotation. If you have ideas for topics we should write about, or if you are a faith leader and would like to participate, please call Pastor Dawn Blundell at Epworth UMC, 775-423-4714.

Rev Dawn Blundell

There is a great passage in the Bible that’s one of my favorites. Why are you worrying about what you will eat, or drink, or wear, Jesus says in it. Don’t you know that God loves you? It’s in Matthew’s Gospel, chapter 6, and it reminds me that even though difficult things will happen in life, God will carry us through them. It reminds me that worrying about tomorrow robs today of its strength and joy, as Corrie Ten Boom once said. In times like this, when some are hoarding and fighting, we can be fearlessly grateful.

The past few weeks have put the lie to Henley’s words, “I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.” Instead, we live solely at the mercy of Almighty God, our Creator. What’s more, mankind is in rebellion against God’s rule and bears a terrible guilt for breaking his law. Parkside Bible Fellowship teaches the depth of that guilt and of its glorious remedy in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

As we approach Easter this year, the message of hope from Christ’s resurrection is especially poignant. Everything going on in our world can foster despair and hopelessness, however, hope in Jesus Christ provides light in a dark world. “…whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions, and shall be lifted up at the last day.” (Alma 36:3). We can find peace through prayer, studying the words of scripture, and as we spend time together as families. Let us not forget He who overcame all things is our one constant source for peace and hope. May we look to Christ in all things as we celebrate Easter and through the coming months.

The Very Reverend Trudy Erquiaga

‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.’ Amidst this period of anxiety many are expressing the same sentiment as Martha, if not aloud, in their ‘fear’ full minds. “Where is God? Why doesn’t God stop this virus and the deaths? Is there truly a God?” Many are praying to God (in anger, in fear, in hope), awaiting answers to their prayers. The Scripture passage from John’s Gospel speaks to the presence and power of our Lord to raise us up from desperate situations, to breathe new life into our hearts. God is the love inspiring kindness, concern, and compassion for others. God is the hope we have for what is to come. God is the faith we have to embrace each day, each event, in relationship with God. Among the swift and varied changes of the world, may we remain faithful and fixed on God’s love.

Comment author: Claude EzzellComment text: Paul was one of the most manifest men I have ever met. He was a good friends with my Dad and always had an entertaining story for the occasion. One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.
