“I am only one. But still I am one. I cannot do everything. But still I can do something; And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”  So said Edward Everett Hale.

We often hear about the power of ONE.  History is filled with one person who made a difference: Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Robert E. Lee (tearing down his statue will not change his contribution), Washington, Luther, Florence Nightingale, Amelia Earhart, and others.

We are living in uncertain times. Some say unprecedented. No matter what you call it they sure are challenging. Queen Esther did also. My theme for 2022, as you can see, is “For Such a Time…”  Why did I choose that theme? In fact, I chose that theme in October, before the last two months of upheaval. Why? Frankly, our culture is not unlike the one Esther lived in. Mordecai, her cousin, told her she must choose.

So must we. His challenge to her is one for us.  Take the time to read Chapter 4 of Esther and specifically focus on verse 14.  You will have my objective for this Sunday. I look forward to starting this new theme. Oh…by the way…the series which follows is from Daniel. I’m calling it Against the Grain.

I hope you will join us this Sunday. If not in person then live stream at 9 and 10:45.

    ‘For such a time as this …’

    That phrase has hit me numerous times in the past year … and I do believe it’s going to applicable all over again in 2022.

    Preach it, Bill.
