Dear Editor,

With all the pain and suffering recently in Point Pleasant and new prayer concerns that come along, I share this with our community. We come together to offer support to one another. That support is very important. Moving through this kind of experience without the help of family and friends and the Christian community is a hard thing.

Christianity is founded on hope. The simple and great truth about Jesus is hope. Our hope is the resurrection of Christ. If Christ is not risen, then our hope is in vain. Let hope embrace us as we move forward.

Finally, I share John Wesley’s three simple rules: Do no harm, Do good, and Stay in love with God. I know that this won’t answer all our questions but without hope we could not exist. Because of Jesus, we have a hope that takes us not only through this present time of grief and sorrow but also through all of life.

Thank You,

Rev. Matthew Dotson
