The video shows Pastor Kind, after the closing service for the ULC chapel, reading a portion of the letter from Pastor Pless. The entire letter is reproduced below.
In part: “…’The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever’ (Isaiah 40:8). That is God’s promise for you and this congregation. To recall the hymn, ‘crumbled have spires in every land’ but the church of Jesus Christ is indestructible. Your destiny as individual Christians and as a congregation is tied to the destiny of the Word of the Lord which endures forever. That is good news, Gospel, indeed for Christ’s little flock whose life is hidden under cross and suffering….”
Thank you, Pastor Pless, for your words of comfort to the saints at ULC.
