From Our Pastor

  A current favorite song of mine by Art Garfunkel (remember him? Don’t know him? Google him.) is called Grateful. To be honest, I’m in love with the lyrics; the melody is a bit off to me. It isn’t well known – I don’t remember how I found it – and was written for a children’s book by the same name. It’s been on repeat for me lately… reminding me of my gratitude and giving thanks to God for all God and you do in the name of Christ.

  I’ve got a roof over my head, I’ve got a warm place to sleep
Some nights I lie awake counting gifts Instead of counting sheep

  I’ve got a heart that can hold love, I’ve got a mind that can think
There may be times when I lose the light and let my spirits sink
But I can’t stay depressed when I remember how I’m blessed

  Grateful, grateful, truly grateful l am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed and duly grateful

  In a city of strangers I got a family of friends
No matter what rocks and brambles fill the way
I know that they will stay until the end

I feel a hand holding my hand; It’s not a hand you can see
But on the road to the Promised Land this hand will shepherd me
Through delight and despair holding tight and always there

  Grateful, grateful, truly grateful l am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed and duly grateful

  It’s not that I don’t want a lot or hope for more, or dream of more
But giving thanks for what I’ve got makes me happier than keeping score

  In a world that can bring pain I will still take each chance
For I believe that whatever the terrain our feet can learn to dance
Whatever stone life may sling we can moan or we can sing

  Grateful, grateful, truly grateful l am
Grateful, grateful, truly blessed and duly grateful
Truly blessed and duly grateful

  I’ve begun working on a list of how you have lived into this mission of this congregation – to love, serve, and gather in Christ – and I keep adding more ways you have acted on your faith. You’ll see the list soon, and I’m sure you’ll let me know what I forgot, but I just wanted to say how grateful I am for your support, for your hard work and courage, and for your time, effort and generosity. Sharing your faith, generosity, and gifts isn’t always easy so keep the faith, finish the race (2 Timothy 4:7).

“Truly Blessed, and Duly Grateful,”

Pastor Emily
