Just in for Valentine’s Day -- a love letter from God to you. Read what God has to say. It’s all right in the scriptures! My Child In me you live and move and have your being. Acts 17:28 I know everything about you. Psalm 139:1 I know when you
Back in January I offered an opportunity to select a word to guide your spiritual journey through the coming year. The instructions were to just sit with the word selected, let it speak to you, guide you and maybe form the direction of your reflection and action. My word was BLOOM! And from the moment I picked it I found my thoughts and ideas being directed. Then in March, the pandemic overwhelmed our every thought and action. It brought us to a halt.
And now it’s NOVEMBER! How did we get here?
Since November is National Gratitude Month, I am going to make GRATITUDE our word of the month! It will find its way into the center of our worship gatherings and my weekly messages.
November 8th “Tending the Light”, we will remember God’s blessings and commandments . On November 15th is Stewardship Sunday, “Nurturing the Gift”. We will dedicate our financial pledges as we prepare for the work of our church in the coming year. November 22 is THANKSGIVING SUNDAY, “Sharing the Blessing”. It will be a time to express wonder and joy at the goodness and abundance of God.
This month let’s pause and look to the source of our blessings. As we celebrate Gratitude, Blessings and Thanksgiving, the biblical texts speak for themselves. They remind us of the sacredness of all that God has created. May we be able to respond with genuine gratitude.
