Pastor's Letter

November 29, 2020

 

Dear Church Family,

My letter today is to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!  No matter what the challenges have been, or even the challenges we have today, there is always room to give God thanks.

In this letter, I have listed passages of Scripture for your consideration.

 
Psalm 26:7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
Psalm 50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
Psalm 69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
Psalm 95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Psalm 107:22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
Psalm 116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord.
Psalm 147:7 Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
Jonah 2:9 But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that, that I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Colossians 2:7 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 9:15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Hebrews 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
Revelation 7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

As you spend time with your loved one and friends, and as you sit around your table for your meal, perhaps you can read or reflect on one or some of these passages.

I want to remind you that on Saturday November 28th from 11am – 2pm, you will be able to secure your Holy Communion cups for the next few months, and your Sunday School books for the new quarter.

                       

                 A THANKSGIVING DAY PRAYER



O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry. When I have work, help me to remember the jobless. When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all. When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer. And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency, bestir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help, by word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen.
 

— Samuel F. Pugh
