Pastor’s Ponderings – Now is the Time

Pastor's Ponderings

Dear Glen Mar friends,

On behalf of your pastors and staff, I want to thank everyone for their expressions of love for October’s Clergy (and Staff) Appreciation Month. It is our joy to be in ministry with each of you and we are so grateful God has brought our lives together!

Now is the time to sign up for our 5-week Advent study (The Journey, by Adam Hamilton, newly revised)! I’ll be preaching a series along with it, so, while it is not required, if you are looking for a way to make Advent special and deeply engage with the Christmas story, this is a great way to do it. Sign up here by 5 pm on Sunday.

Now is also the time to gather what we need for Journey to Bethlehem! Thank you to all who are participating, planning and praying for this great event. Share with friends! Invite your neighbors! There are many spots available for guests at

In terms of supplies, we could use:

  • Wooden bowls or wooden pitchers/serving things (for mini-marketplace)
  • 2 more 100 ft extension cords (14 gauge or higher)
  • 2 gallon or bigger plastic jugs (for securing pop ups)
  • Large new bags of instant light charcoal
  • Clothes line or parachute cord-weight string (to secure pop ups)

Please bring by your items to the JTB tent inside the gathering place by November 25. You can sign up here to let me know.  Contact me with questions.

See you in Church this Sunday where we will have baptisms and commitments of faith for Christ the King Sunday. I’ll be preaching on “Anointed” — y’all come!

PS If you have turned in a recent “estimate of giving” for our stewardship campaign, you will receive a free CD of Eric Sayers playing songs of the faith. The CD is almost ready for distribution…stay tuned…and if you haven’t put in your estimate yet, there’s still time to help us as we budget for 2023…and you too can get a free CD or online equivalent!
