Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. – James 1:17
This past Thanksgiving Season we had our annual Special Offering for the Diaconate’s Mercy Fund. In this quiet moment, as the offering baskets were passed we were able to quiet our hearts and listen.
We heard the beautiful testimonies of congregants whose lives had been touched by the Diaconate ministry. And we on the Diaconate cannot have done our work without the faithful and generous gifts from you. These stories often resonate in our own hearts. They can call up moments in our own lives or the lives of our families or friends when the touch of God’s love practically and personally has changed us forever, all in a single experience. One testimony becomes a chorus of thanksgiving for a whole congregation.
So during this holiday season, we are thankful for you dear congregants for sharing what you have to help bring the tender love of Jesus to the needy brothers and sisters in our midst. Please accept our gratitude and our invitation to continue your giving toward our work of restoration through the Diaconate ministry.
