"I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD!'"Psalm 122:1 Public worship is both the great blessing and also the chief duty of the Christian church. It is the avenue through which our Lord Jesus Christ has promised to pour out covenant blessings. When the church gathers for worship we do so in order to offer to God a sacrifice of praise and to ...

The Heart of a Pastor

If you want to see Paul's tenderness and pastoral heart for a church then you really ought to read and meditate upon his first epistle to the church in Thessalonica.

But as he write...

Longing for God

"O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands...

Pastoral Letter Regarding COVID-19

Dear Westminster family and friends, "When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid." Psalm 56:3 I'm sure I had read this verse plenty of times, but it was not until I sang a little song based on this verse with a bunch of preschoolers that the truth it conveys hit me. Little children often have fears. They ...
