Dearest brothers and sisters in Christ-
As we draw so close to the Thanksgiving holiday, I am filled with hope, peace and anticipation. I anticipate such a beautiful growth in our lives. I anticipate joy to be shared amongst all of those that are reading this and so many more.
I pray that you are filled with peace and hope in this season. I pray that you are able to
share that peace and hope with all others, making it known from whom peace and hope
comes. May we share our thankfulness that it is by Christ alone that we are able to be joyous in all seasons of life.
I know that 2020 has not been an easy year. It certainly has been filled with anxious and unsure moments. However, we are still in 2020 and I wish to end this year on a strong and joyous note. No matter what occurs, we always have God on our side. We always have Him with us, to guide us, strengthen and encourage us. In a world that seems so divided, may we be united as His Church. I pray for many peaceful and blessed days to be on you all. I pray that we are able to see our brothers and sisters for who they truly are. No matter what has happened in the past, whether you agree or disagree about Covid or the election, may we see one another for who they truly are...our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are all the children of God. May we treat others
as we are called to and share a deeply true love for one another.
This year we are sharing the Advent in a Box Project. I invite you to hand at least one Advent Box to someone that may not be able to attend in person worship or possibly doesn’t have a church home. These boxes hold several elements to help the online worship experience feel more personal and inviting. These boxes are free. I ask that you accept a box and pray for guidance as to who would accept this gift. If you need more than one box, please feel free to hand out as many as you feel led to hand out.
I pray that you feel and experience the Peace of Christ.
In His glorious presence-
