November 2022

Greetings,

November is well known for the Thanksgiving Holiday. A time we set aside as a nation to give thanks for the blessings we enjoy here in the United States. But November is also a time we set aside in the church to give thanks for those Saints who have gone before us.  The great cloud of witnesses who have died and gone ahead of us.

Both of these events, Thanksgiving and All Saints Day, are times of remembering our past, recognizing what we have been given and looking toward our future knowing we have a solid base upon which to build. Both of these times are for remembering God’s work in our lives and giving thanks for the people who have led us in faith and for the bounty we enjoy on a daily basis as our needs are met.

There is a song that always runs through my head when I think of thanksgiving–Give thanks with a grateful heart….May this November be a time for your grateful heart to give thanks for the Saints in your life for the blessings you have received.

In Christ,

Pastor Pat
