Once upon a time, a little red haired girl came to church at St. Mark's. She would run through the aisles with delight in her eyes. She attended Sunday School and learned all about God's love.

From the Pastor

“A problem not worth praying about is a problem not worth worrying about.” How many times have you lost sleep over some matter or another? Maybe it was something that, at the time, seemed huge or profound. Maybe it was something that, at the time, just seemed nettling or bothersome.
