The photograph of our building is out of date, but I have always loved this picture. I like the fact that the most notable word is “Celebration.” These days, when we watch, read or listen to the news, much of what we are receiving is serious. Very serious. It seems that being able to celebrate is a long way off.
However, God’s love is always with us, and that can be celebrated. We have been given the gift of the Living Christ and we have been given the gift of Scripture. We have been given the gift of prayer. We can celebrate the gift of one another. These are blessings we can count and more importantly, take part in every day. We even have been given the gift of Zoom. I know all too well that Zoom can be frustrating. Yet, every Sunday afternoon when I can see the faces of those who gather, I give thanks. Our prayers and conversations inspire me to embrace and celebrate my own struggles. God has given us the gift of community. Let us not take that for granted. Let us count our blessings.
See you Sunday,
Rev. Sue Ann
