GOOD MORNING! Starting November 1st, we’re going to begin a series called “Thanks-Living”. Each week of the series, we are going to explore those things that are happening in our lives (past, present and future) that we should be so grateful for and which we should give a tremendous amount of thanks and praise to God for. It’s easy sometimes to forget that life is really pretty good for most of us, and we certainly don’t say thanks to God enough for the fortune, success and “things” that we have.
Here are the topics for each week:
November 1st – All Saints Day – Thankful for Those That Have Gone Before Us
November 8th – Veteran’s Day – Thankful for our Troops & Service Personnel (Past & Present)
November 15th – Caregivers – Thankful for Doctors, Nurses, Medical Professionals, Service Professionals
November 22nd – Family – Thankful for relatives and the support systems we’ve had in place since birth
HERE’S YOUR HOMEWORK:
Starting NOW, we would like you to send us pictures and videos of people in your life that represent EACH of those topics. We are going to integrate those into worship each week and this is a tremendous opportunity for you to interact with Connexion and to give thanks and remember those that we truly care about.
You can email pictures and videos to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can upload them to our Twitter account (@ConnexionAUMC) and use the hashtag #THANKSLIVING. You can post them on our Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/ConnexionWorship). Or you can put them on a thumb drive and bring them to worship. However you choose to do it, we will make it work!!
There is your assignment. Go forth and do awesome things with this! We look forward to working with you to make worship an amazing place for the entire month of November!
