A note from the Pastor

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Giving thanks is an important part of the life of the Christ-follower. Gratitude to God for His guidance and His blessings is something that we are to do. So in good and even difficult times, we are to give praises to God. With this in mind, it is with much gratitude and praise that I write these words to all of you for my time here at LCPC. God has been good, He has been generous, and He has been trustworthy. I can see His fingerprints on so many different aspects of my year here and I continue to trust Him as together, we move forward in His Kingdom work.

So as we make preparations for next week’s Thanksgiving celebrations and gatherings, pause long enough to give God thanks. Even if you are in a difficult season of life, give thanks where you can. Reflect on how He has been faithful in the past. Pause long enough to see His kindness today. Look for the blessings that He has and He is providing. This is a good spiritual exercise to do on a regular basis.

Also, be in prayer for me and my family as we travel to Texas to celebrate daughter Lauren’s marriage to Thomas Watson. It will be a grand celebration, Texas style, so we are looking forward to all that will take place.

Y’all have a great rest of the week.
