"SPEER-itual Moments"

By: Rev. Gary H. Speer

I can already begin to sense it…next Monday is Halloween, and then after that we begin the move toward those special times of the year…Thanksgiving and Advent/Christmas. I can see it in television ads already. And of course, some chain stores have already had up for some time now Christmas decorations to purchase.
Even our calendar begins to move us there as we think about special times of fellowship and gathering we will share together—for instance on Sunday, November 13, our Combined Worship and Thanksgiving Feast…just a few weeks away.

My thoughts have already made the turn toward Thanksgiving messages, and a series for Advent that will take us to Christmas.
Before we know it, we will be seeing what children/youth/or senior adults we can adopt through ACO as we make plans for “angel gifts” once again.
And so it begins…
