The Pastor’s Ponderings

It seems in our day and age that manners have gone out of style. We take offense when people try to do 

something kind and are rude when we have the opportunity to be kind. Would it kill us to actually be nice to 

each other and respect each other instead of picking at each other? What would happen if we let someone

 who gets excited about pumpkin spice be excited about pumpkin spice rather than making fun of them? 

What if we let someone who likes to countdown to Christmas count down without being told why they 

shouldn’t count down yet. (It’s only 3 months till Christmas!)

What if at work we said good morning to each other and worked together for the better of the organization? 

What if in politics we all cared about our country rather than who is right and who is wrong?

I think it is time that we go back to the very basic commandment that Jesus gave us, to love our neighbor as 

ourselves and to love God. Let’s ask ourselves in each of our daily interactions if we are treating others the 

way we want to be treated and if our daily living shows the love of God to all.

Grace and Peace,
