A Word from Mike…


The giving of thanks to God should be a prevalent theme that permeates everything in our lives. When we give thanks to God, we express not only our gratitude, but also our dependence upon Him for all that we are and for all that we have. So, in the process of giving thanks, we express these things to God but we also remind ourselves of all that God has done for us! I have to admit that it is much easier and natural for me to be talking to God about what I need than to express thanks to Him for what I have!


Thanksgiving doesn’t end on the designated day. As we shift from Thanksgiving to Christmas, we are reminded of the greatest gift for which we should certainly be most thankful—the gift of Christ and the spiritual benefits that are ours, if we know Him.


Do you know Him? Are you thankful? Are you hopeful? If so, what a great time to continue in expressions of praise and thanks to God. If not, what better time than now to turn to Christ for hope, forgiveness, peace; after all, He is the only hope for our brokenness and sinfulness, and He is, indeed, the Prince of Peace! Your circumstances may not change, but your perspective on them can. It can shift from the immediate to the bigger, eternal picture. Ultimately, things are going to get better for all of us who know Christ. Boy, does that give me hope…and peace.


I pray that you have a blessed and peaceful Christmas, filled with rest, joy, and peace.


I wanted to give some open dates for SEARK BCM this semester and the Free Lunch. We need churches to adopt these dates. Also for the teaching this semester we are going to teach through 1 Peter and I have the verses divided between the dates. If someone would like to bring lunch to the BCM that would be great and they can just contact me about that. If anything is unclear just let me know.


Here are those open dates: [I know it is not many but we are only twice a month right now.]
