November - a month of gratitude. Let's take a moment to breathe together in thankfulness to God, in a weird weird world.
Find a comfortable seated position in a safe quiet space. Close your eyes and pay attention to your breath. You and God, alone in the quiet. For 10 breath cycles, pray the following:
Inhale: God, as chaos whirls around us,
Exhale: Thank you for not letting me go.
2020 has been a hard, strange year for a lot of reasons. We all know that. But in the midst of the chaos and wierdness, God is still at work - holding on to you tight as the world keeps spinning. God is in the midst of our Confirmation gatherings and discussions on the lawn or online, God is present in the laughter at our Youth Group bonfires. God is present as we share our stories and care for one another. As the world continues to turn, seek to feel God holding on to you tight. God won't let you go! For that, we can be grateful!
"For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, "Do not fear, I will help you."
As the weather turns colder, Confirmation has moved online! Parents, please keep an eye on your emails for the link to join in our Confirmation classes at 6:00 on Wednesday evenings. Thank you for being flexible as we navigate our way through this.
It's getting colder, and that means our bonfires may soon be coming to an end. We are taking things week by week - if it's too cold for a bonfire, we will do an online check in. If the weather is warm enough to bundle up and be together outside around a fire, we'll do that. Please keep an eye on emails, text messages and social media outlets for weekly plans and updates. I appreciate your flexibilty during these times!
You are loved!
