November 2017 Newsletter

From the Pastor…

How quickly time passes as we move from the warmer days of September and October into the month of November, a time for giving thanks and a time to remember those we have loved and lost.  Many of us remember celebrating All Saint’s and All Soul’s Day on November 1st and 2nd, a time to remember the holy people who have come before us and to think back with affection about beloved family and friends we have lost.  In Mexico, they celebrate the Day of the Dead where they visit the gravesites and bring a picnic to commune with the spirits of precious loved ones.  It seems a fitting time of year to recall those we have lost as we move into the season of Thanksgiving when we gather with dear friends and family to share a meal and to take stock of all the blessings in our lives.

Among the many blessings of this past year, I certainly count my call to serve as Pastor at Union Church among them.  It has been a wonderful time of introduction for me in recent months, to the traditions and rituals, the committees and outreach, and most especially to all of the wonderful members and friends whom I have had the privilege and pleasure of coming to know over this time.  It has been a joy for me to share visits with many in the church, and I will continue to welcome that opportunity in the days ahead.  We all have stories of our lives and I know that this is just the beginning.  The conversations I have shared with so many of you have been inspiring, interesting, and truly fun as we have spoken about the joys and sorrows that many have shared.  Thank you to all of you for making time to visit with me and for your warm welcome, your support, and your encouragement.

My hope and prayer is that in the coming days, you may take time to be still, to rest, to remember those you have lost and to give thanks for all the simple gifts of your life.

In Peace, Pastor Paula
