4th Sunday of Easter

Dear Brothers and Sisters; We are often encouraged to read the Bible. One thing that the Bible does is to make us aware of our great and large Faith Family. The Bible is God’s testimony of how He has interacted with us, and us with Him, throughout time. Our great patriarch, Joe Gomez, recently completed his earthly journey. When I think about his life, I am very impressed with the people that he knew as living persons. When he was a young boy, President Franklin Roosevelt was speaking to America on the radio. Joe might have heard the original speech from Roosevelt when the news of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor happened. Joe might have been impressed with the news of a nuclear bomb exploding in the New Mexico desert. Joe probably heard the flash of national relief that rang out across the globe when the end of World War II came. Joe heard, and maybe danced, to a new singer by the name of Elvis Presley. Joe was a grown man when a group of men came from England singing about a, “Hard Day’s Night”. Joe might have had good buddies that died in the Vietnam War. Joe saw astronauts land on the moon. Who are the people that you ‘know’ ?

                                                                So let our sacrifice be in your presence today
    and find favor before you;
            for those who trust in you cannot be                               put to shame.
And now we follow you with our whole heart,
    we fear you and we seek your face.
Do not put us to shame,
             but deal with us in your kindness                           and great mercy.
Deliver us in accord with your wonders,
         and bring glory to your name, O Lord. 
                                                                                                                                                                                  Daniel 3:40-43
