Pastor’s Message

“The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to want.”  Proverbs 21:5

Grace and Peace to you all!

There is such abundance in Fall!  An abundance of vegetables to harvest, an abundance of beauty in the changing leaves, and an abundance of things to do.  Our Bazaar is drawing near, and our basement and classrooms continue to fill up. Our grocery cart in the narthex was so full, Lynn and Bill had to make a midweek trip to the food shelf.  In so many ways, our cup overflows!

Still, many of us struggle with our relationship with money.  Is it possible to live within a money system and still stay faithful to God?

An old Shaker song, written by Elder Joseph Brackett suggests it might be:

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ‘tis the gift to be free,

‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,

And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

‘Twill be the valley of love and delight.

We can all find joy through our generosity and simplicity.

Join us at the Generosity and Simplicity Place every Sunday at 9:30 AM.

With Blessings and Thanks,

Pastor Leigh
