Say Thanks Today …

– Thanks to the pastors and priests who serve your congregation.
– Thanks to the invaluable leaders who work with kids and youth.
– Thanks to those who prepare and serve refreshments, who serve as greeters or ushers, who attend to facilities and grounds.
– Thanks to those who serve behind the scenes on boards, committees, guilds, etc.
– Thanks to administrators.
– Thanks to musicians, artists, readers, prayer-ers, liturgists, and others who lead in gathered worship.
– Thanks to those who model faith, hope, and love for you week after week … simply by being there, “passing the peace,” smiling, singing, caring.
It’s not easy building and sustaining community. I was a church planter and pastor for 24 years, so I know. That’s why every Sunday, I give thanks to God – and to others.
