This was a great day to be in the house of the Lord. The youth worship team (Tamsyn and Jessica Neale, Joel Lise and James Godfrey) led us in songs of praise. Former youth pastor Walter and Sonja Tuokkola brought greetings from Finland where Walter is completing his master’s degree. They are preparing for missions.
Pastor Darren spoke a challenging message from Eph 4:26 on anger, “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath”. Anger is not always negative – abuse and violence is anger gone bad. Anger is an emotion to bring about positive change in us. It should never be directed at people, rather it should drive us to the point of intolerance with things in our lives that need to change.

Today was a great day at Saalem. We welcomed Pastor Darren Godfrey as our new pastor who will be in charge of our English congregation. Miriam Kemppainen led in praise and worship. Jacob Puiras and Tamsyn Neale sang a beautiful duet. Then Pastor Darren spoke from 2 Tim 1:7 on “Dismantling FEAR in our lives”. The fruit which fear produces is worry, anxiety and doubt, while the fruit of faith is peace, joy and love. By God’s grace we can choose to reject fear and choose to live by faith.

The year started with beautiful weather – no snow to speak of and everyone happy and thankful. We held a combined New Years Day service at Saalem. The men’s group led in praise and worship. The Finnish choir sang 2 pieces. Ralph Papiest brought greetings from a great youth retreat held between Christmas and New Years. Pastor Paavo spoke on “New Years Resolutions.” The only one important to keep is the one Jesus gave to Peter in John 21:19 and 21 “you must follow Me!” or to paraphrase, “stay close to Me.”
