Greetings in Christ!
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! Let us rejoice in cobalt-blue skies and the merest hint of color on the edges of a few leaves, and let us be glad that we still have a ways to go before autumn begins in earnest and we have to break out the sweaters and light jackets! The last few mornings have given us a light “tap on the shoulder” to let us know what’s coming, but then the sun warms the air as the day progresses, and we can still be comfortable in short sleeves.
Now that we’re past Labor Day (and should no longer be wearing white… ), the kids are back in school, plans are being developed for Thanksgiving and Advent, and maybe travel to warm places when the weather Up North turns really cold; such is the rhythm of life. As you’re studying your calendars, planning for fall and winter activities and events, we’d like to gently suggest that you include the church in your considerations of how to allocate your time. Many of you are already actively engaged in many aspects of church life, and that’s wonderful! But some of us have taken some time away from regular worship attendance and participating in other aspects of our communities of faith. The bottom line is that we miss you, and we look forward to seeing you more often as the seasons turn! Your presence with your church family is the greatest gift of all! Always remember that God is good, all the time; and all the time, God is good!

Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. Psalm 95:6
Wishing you joy and peace in your day! Remember, God’s got this.
