Let me take this opportunity to thank all you wonderful folk at St. Andrew’s who work so hard to make this church the wonderful church it is today. Thank you for your faithfulness to God and to the church family. We really couldn’t do what we do without you!
This week I received possibly the most beautiful ‘thank you’ card ever! It was beautifully hand crafted and clearly the sender had gone out of their way to personally thank me for a service at which I had officiated.
They didn’t have to thank me, and in truth I was only ‘doing my job’. But their card spoke volumes to me, and for a moment their ‘thank you’ made everything - the stresses and strains of ministry, all worthwhile! Today, we are thinking about being thankful to Jesus for all he has done for us. He might not need our thanks…but in giving thanks we are reminded of all he has done for us and won for us through the cross.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
(1 Chron 16:34)
