Pastor’s Message: Let’s Give Thanks

The things we are most thankful for are not our luxury car, golf clubs or jewelry, but I hope the people around us, the ones close by-- the kids, the spouse, the neighbor, the friend at work, even the people at church.

Let’s give thanks for the great and not-so-great people in our lives. Our family and friends, those who wait on us or clean up after us, our kids’ teachers or the mechanic who changes our car oil, the unseen firefighter who is ever vigilant, the soldier in the Middle East, the government inspector who keeps our food and toys safe, the people who dust the pew I sit on each Sunday. For all these, we give thanks. I’ll be taking time on Thanksgiving to be thankful for all of you! Father Justin and I join in wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving.
