ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ — The Rev. Michael Riley will preach Sunday on Paul’s advice to the Romans that living in joy is not always easy but is rewarding in a message entitled “Easier Said Than Done.”

   The worship service at the 121-year-old, handicapped accessible First Presbyterian Church, Third and E. Highland Aves., begins at 10 a.m.

   The new pastor also will continue his “mystery bag” children’s sermon series when youngsters try to “stump the pastor” by placing a personal “treasure” in a brown paper bag. Riley then picks one bag and creates a children’s message from its contents.

   In addition to being the church’s pastor, Riley is a columnist, staff writer and editorial writer at the Asbury Park Press. His weekly Press column, “Only Human,” appears on Fridays.
