Colossians 4:2 "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful."
In just a few days I will gather with family and share a traditional American Thanksgiving meal with Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes (and the McDermid family Sweet Potatoes with mini-marshmallows). We will take time at some point to share something we are thankful for and I always have a tough time picking just one thing (I'll probably choose my family).
But since I have time here, I will list a few more things
1. I am thankful for my church family. Over the past year we have felt loved and welcomed here as we settled into our new church home. My kids have made friends. We have been invited into people's homes. We have been sent notes of encouragement...we have felt very loved!
2. I am thankful for our servant leaders here at Six Points. This church has an amazing group of volunteer leaders who serve with willing hearts. They give their time, energy and effort to make this church a better place and I am blessed to work alongside them for the Kingdom. To my MLT and LBA leaders...thank you for your work for the Lord!
3. I am thankful for my co-workers. I love working with Vickie and Pastor Andrew here at the church and they are a blessing to me and to many. We are a team and their efforts make this a better church community.
4. I am thankful for the saints here at Six Points. You are a blessing to me. Your love for the Lord is an example to me. Your commitment to your faith in both good and bad times is inspiring to me.
Blessings on you this Thanksgiving
Pastor Scott McDermid
