This Sunday... “Give thanks, give thanks, give thanks thanks! Thanks be to God!” Surely lines of Handel’s “Messiah” are not how each of us greet the coming holiday, and you may not hear the melody in your head. Still, as we approach a day set aside for Thanksgiving, we may pause in the midst of things to be grateful for the gifts we know as members and friends of this church. How are your spirits lightened by community when circumstances in our world dismay or confuse? How do you know greater strength when you know the ways in which God both upholds the righteous and challenges the comfortable? Let us celebrate and also remember with thanksgiving our connections as people of faith.
— Pastor Lisa
