I want to give a word of thanksgiving to everyone in the church family for making me feel so welcome these past three weeks. We are certainly off and running! My first Sunday here was a special day where we discussed some of the principles that we will abide by during my time with you. On November 22, it was great to show our gratitude to God on Thanksgiving Sunday. And November 29 put us in the holiday mood a bit with our 1st Sunday of Advent.
One of my favorite songs this time of the year is “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, because it certainly is. With the joys of Advent, Christmas and the New Year ahead of us, I’m really looking forward to this month of work and worship.
2021 will be our time to make progress toward finding the next pastor of this church. But for December, 2020, let’s not forget to simply enjoy the moments. God will be present among us as we praise God’s name and celebrate the birth of our Savior. And, if we pay close attention, we will see God’s Spirit at work in our midst, building us up and preparing us for a great joy that will extend past Christmas morning.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone this Advent and Christmas season!
