This week’s blog/email will be a little shorter as I am just trying to rest while on vacation and ill! Yay! The good thing about being ill on vacation is that you don’t get as far behind and things were already planned to a certain degree. But of course, the bad thing about being ill on vacation is...well...who wants to be ill on vacation during the holidays!!!
I am in fact doing much better and I believe on the mend however. While I won’t be able to be in the room with any other humans on Thanksgiving, I give thanks for zoom so I still have a place at our table!! I pray that in all your efforts to be safe during this time that you also know you have a place at the table...always a place at God’s table. You are loved and beloved.
This Sunday we begin Advent. Advent is waiting and anticipation, and also the coming of something new. I hope we can start work together in this season as a council and congregation to see what new things come for Grace Lutheran. I know the future is unclear...as with any new birth...but God is present and to be borne again and again in our midst! We wait with anticipation and we celebrate what has already come!
