When I remember the holidays, I remember the table. I remember preparing, eating, and sharing all the food that comes with Thanksgiving and Christmas. We still practice the habit of eating well this time of year. And we hear and give the instructions our relatives and friends give every year: Eat well. Be full.
My Thanksgiving message to you carries the same message: Be full. This season, we have prepared a bountiful round of worship and service. Wherever your holiday travels take you, my blessing is the same: Be full.
Here at First Methodist, we begin November with a celebration of the saints who have blessed us with their faithfulness. Come and remember. Eat well. Be full.
We continue November with the theme of gratitude. We will pledge to give generously and faithfully in the year ahead. Whatever you give, give thanks. Eat well. Be full.
We end November with a celebration of Christ the King. We will fill our hearts with the news that Jesus is Lord-today and tomorrow. We are feasting on the riches of his grace. Eat well. Be full.
May Christ bless us with lives ready to receive all the hope he will give.
