Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! For many this Thanksgiving will be different. Family gatherings are discouraged, and let’s face it 2020 has been a hard year so far. What do we have to be thankful for? Plenty! We are God’s children and His heirs. God’s kingdom is ours. We were given this when we were baptized into Jesus death and His resurrection. Everyday as God’s holy people we return to that baptismal font carrying our sins, and that water that never evaporates assures us that we are still His children. What a reason to give thanks! But there are smaller reasons as well. We are still able to gather around God’s Word. I know that for those gathering online it’s not quite the same, but still there is God’s Word waiting for you! Give thanks! You have enough for your daily bread. You have people that care, including your church family. You have shepherds keeping you in contact. You have Stephen Ministers to help when times are hard. And your Pastor is praying for all of you. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
