Greetings, my friends in Christ!

Here it is November already.  Much of the harvesting is done; the fields are ready for their winter rest; the trees are bare of their leaves; smoke rises from chimneys as we gather inside our homes with family and friends. 

It is a time of reflection and quiet … to do as the Apostle Paul writes to the people of Thessalonica. 


                Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

There is much for which to be thankful. 


  • God’s continued love for each of us

  • God’s Word to us, not only what is written, but also in Christ Jesus, our Lord

  • Our Church

  • Our families and friends

  • So much more!

I am grateful for each one of you … as we work together to bring the message of God’s love to those around us.  God has gifted us in so many ways … some for teaching; some for visiting the sick and lonely; some for administration and organizing; some for preaching; some in the talents of music and song.  The list can go on and on.  When reading the last chapter of the book of Acts, Luke states that the Apostle Paul, instead of feeling useless and impotent, he chose instead to do whatever he could to aid the people on the island of Malta.  He used his abilities to gather wood, to talk with the islanders and shipmates about the love of God in Christ Jesus.  There isn’t one of us who can be idle.  Even if homebound or ill, we can still pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ; pray for our country and its leaders; pray for peace and justice to be evident in every country of the world. 

As I write this, there are numerous threatening devices that have been delivered (or at least attempted to be delivered) to various political and high-profile people and organizations of our country.  Our world continues to move toward increased violence and, even worse, tolerated violence, even sanctioned violence.  This must stop.  I implore you to pray for and speak out for peaceful resolutions to differences of opinions and strategies of political advantage.  This is not God’s will for us … to live in fear and divisiveness … but in peaceful harmony.  We can listen to each other and respect other’s each opinions and views without using violence to eradicate those who oppose us.   

Thank you for your witness of God’s love in this world and for being a partner in ministry. We will make the world a better place for everyone …

Blessings,

Pastor Susan
