Getting this written early tonight – even before the sun sets – and the sunset comes early these days. Currently we are watching the Buffalo Bills put it to the New York Jets. It’s good to see our “local” team winning. I’m sure all my Western New York friends will be happy with this win.
The weather has taken a turn for the cold – it probably feels more like December than November. Friday and Saturday we had lake effect snow. It didn’t stick around for long, mainly because the temps moderated today and the ground is still warm. Yesterday however, was brutal – it was 30 degrees, but windy and wet and it made it feel horrible. Today, in contrast was much nicer.
This past week, we had the opportunity to pray with the local pastors and then on Wednesday we met for our regularly scheduled meeting. We put the finishing touches on our Community Thanksgiving Service that will be next Sunday evening. I will be directing the choir and leading the musical worship. Also as part of the service we are collecting non-perishables to give to those who may have an emergency food need.
This evening we will get a chance to talk to our kids and I am looking forward to that. It is one of the reasons I’m getting this written early.
We had a good worship service this morning. Today was the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War I. At the time it was called the Great War or even the War to End All Wars. Since it was also Veterans Day, we honored them and commemorated the 100th anniversary. I preached a message called “Dressed to the Nines.” We are to clothe ourselves with the characteristics of Christ. It was well received.
That’s about all I have – have a great week!
