From Our Pastor
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the
will of God in Christ Jesus for you." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
As I'm writing this in the middle of October, the month of November appears to hold a lot of unknowns: the building project, weather, what's shared in cottage meetings, etc. Yet, there are two constants for me - All Saint's Day and giving thanks.
On All Saint's Sunday (November 2nd) we will welcome a saint among us; who will be baptized into God's family. We will also remember saints - those people who have shared faith with us - in worship. Even at the beginning of the month, we give thanks for the people who make a difference in our faith life and pledge to make a difference in others' faith lives. … rejoice
No matter the outcome of the Planning Commission meeting, our Faith community can and will continue to give thanks. I, personally, give thanks to God for bonding us together as pastor and people along with a long list of other blessings God has bestowed. The way that you share the good news of Jesus Christ with others, make difficult decisions in a faithful,
prudent manner, and give generously are all blessings. …give thanks in all circumstances…
We can all look towards Christ and the resurrection and know that we have plenty to be thankful for. Hopefully our thankful rejoicing will catch on. Being earnestly thankful is something that we can work on and it will make a difference. The shift from worries and fear to anticipation that God will provide the blessings for which to be thankful makes all the difference. God has given us so much that we take for granted. This is the time to prayerfully rejoice and give thanksgiving with our ceaseless prayer. …For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Cottage Meetings Continue In November
