As the evenings grow longer and our time as a family seems to grow a little closer- it is a great blessing to reflect on those things that we are thankful for. As your pastor for youth and children, I pass through the nursery school nearly every day, and I have enjoyed the developing bulletin boards outside of each classroom- the children have expressed their thanks on paper turkeys and on small hand prints, on pumpkins and through pilgrims- dressed in black and white. Over and over, the children express their thanks for their moms and dads, for their sisters and brothers and for their friends- and of course, for Batman. These simple expressions of thanks- smeared with glitter and finger paint seem to sum up for us the blessings from God that we can be most thankful for- our relationships with one another. This Thanksgiving season, it is my prayer for you that you are blessed with time and with opportunities to nurture relationships with your families and with your friends.  Whether it’s through the gifts of turkey and gravy, the cheers of a football game or parade, or time spent over a board game or walk in the woods, I pray that God especially blesses you through family and friends this Thanksgiving.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Deborah
