 A Word from Pastor Rhonda           November 2018                  leaves border

"Give thanks to the Lord, proclaim God's greatness; tell the nations what God has done."   Psalm 105:1 TEV

 

 

As a nation and a people we are blessed beyond compare.  The importance of not taking that fact for granted was re-enforced for me, when I returned from a trip of several days in Cuba in 2016- We saw a beautiful country going through a multitude of changes and each time I dust the souvenirs, I'm reminded that we have so much to be thankful for- our standard of living is beyond compare; our free speech, our religious freedom, our right to assemble, to come and go as we please are all part of who we are as Americans.  Being able to come together to worship God without fear of reprisal is a blessing many people do not know.


Give thanks this Thanksgiving;  As believers, filled with hope, filled with the assurance we are held in God's care, and seeking to treat others (even strangers) the way we would be treated, it's time to stop keeping our faith a secret.  So speak up, let your light shine, tell another what knowing Jesus means to you, the difference it has made in your life; the freedom, abundance, and blessings you know because you have a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Make it a point to exercise your religious freedom, your freedom to gather and discuss topics that matter- be in worship this and every Sunday.  Give thanks with a grateful heart!
