As I write you this note, it is Sunday night. I am sitting downstairs in my parents’ home as I listen to my folks lead bedtime rituals with our kids. We came to SD for a family wedding and I also attended a training meeting for SD Via de Cristo. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time together so close to Thanksgiving and my dad’s birthday. While I am certain that God’s abundant blessings will be showered upon you this week, I pray that you will be aware of those blessings with joy and thanksgiving. You are encouraged to join us for our Community Thanksgiving Eve Service on Wednesday night at 7:00pm at Bethlehem United Church of Christ. If you are out of town, I pray for traveling mercies and wonderful time with family and friends.
