Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

November brings with it a chill to the air, a harvest moon and thoughts of thanksgiving. The clear stillness of the night, the breezy fall days, and pumpkins galore remind us of God’s bountifulness and creativity. As nature itself gives glory to God, we are led to ask ourselves, “how have we, in the past year, given glory to God?” Has it been through our time, our talents, our gifts, and our witness? Is it evident at home, at work and in God’s church? Has our focus been on God this year or ourselves? As the Christian calendar year ends, take time to reflect upon your life and ministry this past year and ask God to reveal to you where you have grown in your relationship with Him and where you have fallen short. God will reveal these things to you if you seek them.
November is especially known for being the month of Thanksgiving. All of us this year, in spite of hardships, loss and trials, have much in which to be thankful. We will begin with thanking God for the saints who go before us by remembering our newest saints on All Saints Sunday on November 3rd. We then take time to thank our Veterans for their service to our country on Sun- day, November 10th. And last, we shift our focus to family and friends as we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. So as you enjoy the special-made food and enjoy family and friends, remember to spend time in prayer giving thanks to God for his bountiful blessings.
And, of course, as this Christian year ends, we prepare for the new Christian year with the very special and holy season of Advent. As a season and time of preparation, let us shift our focus from all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, towards “Emmanuel, God with Us” as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
May God bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. Amen.
