Clergy Notes – January 26th, 2024

Dear Truro family,

Here we go again… it’s a presidential election year! I imagine most of us are dreading another 283 days (but who’s counting?) of divisive political discourse. Allow me to offer a pastoral word:

As believers: we have one Lord, Jesus Christ (Phil. 2:9). We worship no other name, no other party, and no other power (Acts 4:12). We are members of the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:12), heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:17), one with Christ (Gal. 3:28), brothers and sisters in Christ (Matt. 12:50), and held together in Christ (Col. 1:17). Jesus is our peace (Eph. 2:14), preached peace (Eph. 2:17), and made peace (Col. 1:20).

Whatever year it is, whoever the president is, however the election plays out, and whatever opinions you might have about it all, we have one Lord, one gospel, and one King. My commitment – and my expectation, whether it’s in the pulpit, the pews, or the parking lot – is that as a church, we will celebrate and proclaim the name of Jesus and Jesus alone.

“…and he shall reign forever and ever.” (Rev. 11:15)



Due to inclement weather, the Truro campus will be closed on Friday, January 19.
