Message Part 2) “We’d Never Know How High We Are, Till We Are Called to Rise” Rev. John Song
Doctor Peter Coster who was originally scheduled to preach this Sunday came down with a virus and is unable to come this Sunday. It will be rescheduled at another time. Meanwhile, Pastor John will go deeper into the Part 2 of his last Sunday’s message.
“I cannot believe in a messiah who will come only after 6 million Jews are slaughtered. I cannot believe in that kind messiah. The truth is the Messiah has come. He has come thousands of times through those who have done the messianic deeds. Messianic moment happens every time one does the messianic deed.”
~ Elie Wiesel, the Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate
Mark Twain said, “Your two most important days are
the day you were born and the day you find out why.”
I would add the third most important day to the list,
and that is the day you act on your why.
~ Light Watkins
“I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service.
I acted and behold, service was joy.”
~ Rabindranath Tagore
“We’d never know how high we are,
till we are called to rise;
if we are true to plan,
our statures touch the sky.”
~ Emily Dickinson
