 NOVEMBER 2017

 
Praise the Lord! We have finished Charge Conference! And thank you for all your hard work, everything from putting together our strategic plan for a new ministry, to bringing some fabulous cobblers to share with the folks of our cluster churches. I also want to thank the 20 people who came to the meeting and for all of you who will serve as leaders in 2018. We celebrate a lot of good that God has done through us and we have a lot of good that God will do through us in our future!
As our attention turns to the holidays, I want to share with you some excerpts from a poem about being thankful. It was written by an unknown author and goes like this:
 
“I’m thankful…
…for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours,
Because it means I am alive.
…for weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day,
Because it means I have been capable of hard work.
…for the taxes I pay,
Because it means that I am employed.
…for the teen-ager who is complaining about doing dishes,
Because he is at home and not on the streets.
…for the mess to clean up after a party,
Because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
…for the lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning…
Because it means I have a home.
…for my huge heating bill,
Because it means that I am warm.”
My prayer is that we would find contentment over the holidays. Regardless of the struggles we have in life, I pray that we can all find something for which to be thankful. And then, may God help us to be a blessing to others.
In Christ’s footsteps we walk,
Pastor Roger
