Text Box: MESSAGE FROM 
FATHER JENSON


The poor widow in our Gospel this Sunday has given more to the Lord than the large gifts from wealthier people, although theirs will accomplish more in our eyes.  Jesus does not devalue the large gifts of those blessed with many resources.  But he recognizes the love for God that it takes for someone who is very poor to be willing to give anything at all when they have so little to get by on.  He sees the motives of the heart.  The motives of our heart provide all the luster that our gifts will ever need to be worthy and pleasing in Godís sight.  Have you thought of trying to delight the Lord by how you will be generous and to whom in the new day? 

This week we honor our veterans who served this country in its armed forces on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11th.  God bless all of the members of our parishes who have served this country in her armed forces to protect and preserve her freedom.  

Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
