July 15, 2012 "Look around and see."

July 1, 2012  "Isn't One Religion As Good As Another?"  Dr. Stephen Tolander


The Spectrum Bridge is a poem used in Dr. Tolander's sermon today.  It was written by his mother.

God flung his spectrum bridge across the sullen skies,
And Noah's heart rejoiced to see this pledge of Paradise.

From Calvary to heaven, a bridge was made for man...
A cruel tree, this only way, was part of God's great plan.

An empty tomb it's base, holds firm and tight,
And from that gloom, a wide spread arch leads man from sin to light.

O plant our feet more firmly, on that mighty bloodstained span.
Hold us close, with pierced hands, and guide us home, thou friend of man.

Rev. Marie vonBergen Tolander
