Rev. Andrew Scott
As many of us celebrate thanksgiving this week, and then begin to prepare to celebrate Christmas I think that a part of our year that gets overlooked is the season of Advent. With all the hustle and bustle it can be easy to race straight through the month of december to get to Christmas. Instead we should take this time to rest and ask how we can see God at work in our lives each and every day. On thanksgiving LaGrange UMC hosts a thanksgiving dinner open to all persons. For many the gift of a meal and conversation is a way in which God is at work in their lives. Yet not all of us have the time to help with an event such as this. Well we can still serve by simple acts of everyday kindness. My pastorly advice for this time of year is to do the following.
2) do something nice and simple (i.e. hold a door open for someone, say something nice to a store worker)
3) remember this time of year is stressful for many, but that doesn't mean we need to run around like chickens with our heads cut off
May you have a blessed holiday season!
