Transforming the World through Joyful Discipleship

Dear Friends,

November is here beginning with All Saint’s Day on the first, which we will celebrate at worship on November 4.   Remembering those who have shown us the light of Jesus truly is a great beginning to a month of giving thanks.  Throughout November, we are preparing ourselves to name and celebrate our blessings in ways learned from our Celtic brothers and sisters in the faith.  As we name our blessings, we will hopefully find new ways to bless God through our attitudes, words and actions.

As part of our worship celebration on Sunday, November 18, we will celebrate our blessings with a photo slideshow.  Please send Karen photos of those things that you find to be a blessing, things that make you thankful.  Send them by Wednesday, November 14 via email to obchurchoffice@aol.com.  Be mindful that if the file is less than 500 KB, it may not display well on the screen.

Paul advises the people of Thessalonica to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances;  for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.  Our faith will be contagious when we are thankful for the small and the special blessings that we receive.  Let us celebrate God’s goodness by making being grateful a habit. I’ll start:  Each and every one of you are a blessing to me!  

Thankful with you,

Pastor Debbie
