Pastor's Note 11.15. 2019

Good Day Family,


“Be kind, compassionate, and forgiving to each other, in the same way God forgave you in Christ.” – Ephesians 4:32


World Kindness Day was earlier this week. And while each day there seems to be something else observed, I think this one bears some reflection. Kindness is in such short supply that the world is calling for it to come forth on a particular day.


I know people who don’t observe anniversaries or birthdays or holidays because they think that we should show appreciation and gratitude for the relationships we value every single day. I think that’s true, but I also believe that paying particular attention on a given day helps us be better at paying attention every day. As we move into the holiday season, remember that the word “holiday” originated from the words “holy days.” Let’s make each day holy. Let’s make each day kind. Let’s show appreciation and compassion as part of our regular routine, and in the process, bring glory and honor to our God whose loving kindness endures forever.


Be kind,

Be well,

Pastor Cheryl
