Pastor’s Letter November 2017
Reformation/All Saints’ Day/ Thanksgiving
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
“Oh give thanks to the Lord for He is good.
For His mercy endures forever”.
So, we now enter into a season of giving thanks to the Lord. At the end of November, we will gather at the tables around our nation to share in a feast! But, let us not forget to give thanks to the Lord. We are truly blessed with many things, but mostly all the love of a merciful God who we gather around in Jesus Christ, both in Word proclaimed and sacraments shared, especially in the Eucharist which actually means thanksgiving!
During this time of Thanksgiving, I encourage all of us to be good stewards of our time, talents and possessions. We are trying hard to “Catch-up” from the summer, so your support is truly needed. Please know we all share in this ministry. This is your church. Church is always here for you. Please be there for your church.
November 1st is All Saints’. So let all His Saints - you and I together - give and live with thankful hearts and voices.
I look forward to greeting you at the Lord’s table of thanksgiving each and every Sunday.
“The eyes of all look to thee, O , Lord and thou givest them their food in due season. Thou openest thy hand, thou satisfied the desire of every living thing.”
A blessed Thanksgiving to All!
The Rev. Ronald M. Klose, Pastor
