Being grateful

Friends,

I’ll be away most of this week, attending to a family emergency, but before I drive North, I’d like to say how grateful I am for the following things.

I’m grateful to be part of a congregation willing to dance in the sanctuary on a Saturday afternoon, which you did when a few us played “Brown Eyed Girl” at the end of last weekend’s talent show.

I’m grateful for all of the hard work that went into making the talent show and silent auction a success.

I’m grateful for the faithfulness and wisdom with which you as a congregation are addressing the issue of our bridge.

I’m grateful for all the work so many people put into making MPC a vibrant community.

I’m grateful for the honor of having known Barbara Peters.

I’m grateful for a few days of sunshine.

I’m grateful to be embarking on the journey of Lent, when we look forward to Easter being mindful of all the ways our lives and communities need renewal and resurrection.

I should be back by Sunday, and I look forward to seeing you then.

God’s Peace,

Ben
