Greetings from The Bishop!

 

“Oh give thanks to the LORD…for his steadfast love endures forever!” (Psalm 118:1)  Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, celebration, peace and reflection.  Thanksgiving is to be thankful for what you have and it’s a day that’s set as a reminder for us to be grateful.

 

This week is a time set aside to give thanks for all God has done for us this year.  It is a time of reflection.  Some would say that Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday because Thanksgiving is a kickoff of the Holiday Season.   All the busy preparations can eclipse the real reason for celebrating—offering thanks to the Lord for His abundant blessings.

 

I am always amazed as I look back over the years of God’s grace toward our church.  We have had our set backs and our individual trials, but through it all, we are still here and have so much to be grateful for.  As we sit down with our family and friends over our Thanksgiving meal, look around you.  Thank God for the smiles on the faces, the peace the gathering brings, the gratitude for still being together and the hope for the season to come.

 

Let us take time during this season to look back and see what God has done and celebrate.  I love you all and have a safe and happy thanksgiving!  From my heart to yours!
