Dear Glen Mar friends,
Thanksgiving is on its way - and if you're like us, Thanksgiving looks like staying at home and hunkering down with folks I already live with. So much feels so different. And yet, I'm thankful this year for so many things I normally take for granted. I'm thankful for health and for companionship of spouse and children. I'm thankful for the chance to use technology to stay connected to friends and family. I'm thankful for online worship and phones that allow me to reach out to Glen Mar folks, and for all the people who help make ministry happen.
I'm thankful for the chance to share my blessings with the church and with the world through giving. Our Mission Possible campaign, Wish Upon a Star, Operation Christmas Child, and Journey to Bethlehem!
I'm thankful for Christmas Eve plans that will bless folks who need or want to be at home, and people who would want to come sing Silent Night and light candles/glowsticks in a safe way. Stay tuned for more details on that soon. : )
Join us in worship this weekend where we will explore what it means for our lives and for our Thanksgivings "If Jesus is King." We are capping attendance at 25 on advice of our task force and Drs. Mark and Dianne Landrum who are part of it. Sign up here for in person attendance: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D49AFAF2AA0F9C52-sunday.
Check out this JHU safety video, attached, with our own Dr. Mark Landrum, sharing tips for Holiday Celebrations this year - and let's continue to pray for front line workers and for each other. Thank you for being "the Church" in this unusual and hard time. With God's help, we will get through this, together.
See you "in Church",
