November 2017

Greetings to all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

As we move into November, we remember and celebrate the lives of the saints of Trinity who’ve gone to be with the Lord since our last All Saints Sunday in 2016. This year’s All Saints Day will be celebrated on November 5th at 9:30am with cherished photos on display and our traditional reading of each name with the lighting of a candle and ringing of the bell. I sincerely hope you will support and attend, as we remember those gone before us in the past year and recall Luther’s writing(s) on the Communion of Saints and its importance to our faith journey!

November is also a time when we give thanks for all the blessings we receive! We put aside time to remember those less fortunate than ourselves, our “neighbor in need”. Our Food Pantry will be glad to have your donations of non-perishable items and monetary gifts as our congregation and community volunteers come together with the Boys Scouts of America and make an extra effort to stock our shelves with needed items. We also want to support our Women of the ELCA Thankoffering Service on November 12th at 9:30 and our Thrift Shop Annual Christmas Sale, which in turn supports our Food Pantry. Tell your friends and neighbors to come to Luther Hall for the Annual Christmas Sale taking place the last weekend in November! Check the Trinity Calendar on our website or in this publication for exact details.

Reflecting on the topic of thankfulness, I would be amiss if I didn’t again tell you how thankful I am for the support I’ve received from our congregational council, our members and friends of Trinity. The depth of my gratitude is beyond words, but it is without a doubt stored deep within my heart. Little by little I’ve been returning to some of my pastoral duties and to my supervisory duties for our intern, Vicar Rich. Whether he realizes it or not, he has been a great help to me since his starting at Trinity in September. Eileen McFarland and Kay Patterson continue assisting me “behind the scenes” on Sunday mornings (which continue to be the most challenging) along with Steve Schweitzer and our “rookie and veteran” acolytes and crucifers, extending an arm or a shoulder, acting as what I jokingly call “my human canes” when I’m navigating the steps during worship.

Yes, the list is almost endless at this point in my recovery since June, and, again, I say: “I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now” (Philippians 1:3-5) and the wonderful support I have experienced over these challenging four months. Without hesitation in my heart, I am most certainly grateful and thankful this Thanksgiving that God gave me the “flock” at Trinity to shepherd and serve!

Your Pastor,

The Reverend Nancy L. Moore
