11.20.2020 Pastor's Note | Season and Reason to be Thankful

Since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, this is the reason that I don’t stop giving thanks to God for you when I remember you in my prayers. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, will give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation that makes God known to you. (Ephesians 1:15-17)

Good Day Family,

Season and Reason to be Thankful

We are entering into the days that lead to Thanksgiving. This year will be very different for many of us. Large family gatherings and travel may be on hold especially as we see a surge of COVID-19 cases across the country, including Northeast Ohio. However, with two viable vaccines in production, we can be thankful that the light at the end of the tunnel may be coming into view next year. God answers prayer. We can give thanks to everyone involved in the development of the vaccines, for those medical personnel and all of the essential workers who continue to keep us functioning during the midst of a pandemic. We can thank God for the technology that enables us to connect through Zoom and social media. We can thank God for the outdoor gatherings of the summer and fall that enabled us to see one another even as we had to forgo the hugs and handshakes.

I thank God for the faithfulness of this congregation, for the generosity of not only continuing to support the ministry, but also giving to the needs of the community and the wider church.

We still have more waiting to do. We continue to pray for those impacted by the virus or other illnesses during this time. Let us find ways to share kindness and love to our neighbors during this and the Advent Season, which begins on the last Sunday of this month. I encourage each of us to also create a special worship space in our homes. Light a candle during worship or during your daily prayer time. Go ahead and sing your favorite Christmas carols and watch all the old classic movies. Advent is a season of waiting, but like all seasons of the Christian calendar, it is also a time to give thanks to the Lord!

In Thanksgiving,

Be well,

Pastor Cheryl
