Spring Arrives in Lansdowne

We are celebrating the warming days, the beautiful flowers, the budding and flowering trees, the awakening grass ... 

It reminds us of the Song of Solomon 2:11-12: 

For now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. 

Well, since this is a different climate, we'll say hopefully the snow is over and gone. Rain: that's another matter here in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Of course, we are right across the street from the Dollar Tree, so some unusual items sometimes end up in our yard. We don't mind nifty ones like these whirligigs. Whimsy and surprise are welcome. And if some child wants them, and it will brighten that child's day, by all means take those little whirligigs! 



Wishing you all a blessed day.

Strong Foundation



Sermon for November 19, 2017, on the 130th anniversary of Lansdowne Baptist Church's 1887 founding. The sermon is based on Luke 6:47-49, Jesus' parable of the wise and foolish architects. One builds on a strong foundation and weathers all storms. Jesus' teachings and example and salvation are that strong foundation. Worthwhile consideration for all churches today.

Celebrating Our 130th Anniversary: 1887-2017


This Sunday, November 19, 2017, Lansdowne Baptist Church's congregation celebrates our 130th year of service to God, following the two great commandments to love God and neighbor. It has been an honor to serve our Lansdowne community and to spread the good news far and wide of Jesus, who came to save us and to show us God's profound and abiding love for us all. We will have special memories from some of our members, wonderful hymns accompanied by an equally wonderful pianist, a sermon reflecting on where we have been and looking forward to where we shall go, following obediently where God leads. Through it all, we will enjoy the warm company of our Lansdowne Baptist Church members and friends. Consider yourself invited. See you Sunday morning, at 11 a.m.
