Thank You Month

November is a great month to be “thankful for something”. The first Sunday of November we turn the clocks back and enjoy the extra hour. All Saints is recognized on the first Sunday of November. Even as we grieve the loss of loved ones, All Saints is an opportunity to give thanks for those we remember and God’s eternal home. Election Day we give thanks that we have the right and privilege to vote. Veterans Day is an important day to recognize and give thanks for those who have served our country in the Armed Services. Of course, Thanksgiving Day is a special time to recognize the abundance of food that not everyone has, but so many of us do. It is a day to give thanks for those who provide others with a special meal. Always, not only on a day or month let us recognize the gifts of family, friends, faith and all the “little” moments of kindness, God’s creation, daily opportunities.

....We give thanks for our community of faith that worships together, supports each other and offers hope and healing to those beyond our congregation.

Give thanks for a little and you will find a lot. Look & See!

The Apostle Paul wrote: “Do not worry about anything, but in every- thing by prayer and supplication with Thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

See you in November for All Saints, Christ the King & Advent 1 Sundays! It is a very special time of year!
