FROM YOUR PASTOR


PASTOR’S GRATITUDE LIST

 Gracious God, I have been remiss in not thanking you for the blessings you bestow on me through the life of the Yeamans Park congregation. Every day, I have some reason to be grateful for your presence in the actions of your church. Hear my thanksgiving now.

·       I’m grateful for the grace exhibited in the Thanksgiving dinner for the first responders and Meals-on-Wheels. I rejoice in the ministry of Carolyn, Kristi, Mary, Karen, Kay, and Sandra.

·       I’m grateful for the worship committee and the energy they contribute to our Advent Celebration, the decorations and extra services. Thank you for Trish, Marge, Sara, Carol, Jane, Kathy.

·       I’m grateful for my noon lunch bunch who keep me from feeling alone and encourage my preaching. For June, Stephanie, Ray and Kay, Jane, Eddie, and Denny, hear my gratitude.

·       I’m grateful for the officers of the church and the committed, mature leadership they give the church. I ask your blessing on those who are about to begin serving, Terri, George, Kevin, and Beth.

·       I am grateful for Martha, Lynn, Joan, and Gina who labor for the church beyond the expectations of mere employees. The church is blessed by their efforts.

·       I’m grateful that Lynne enjoys the life of the church so much and participates enthusiastically. Thank you for her ministry that adds to the life of the church.

 O God, whose presence is the joy of every moment, I thank you that I see your grace all around me. It is true, “The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places. I have a good  heritage.” Accept my prayer in the righteousness that is Jesus Christ. AMEN


RESBYTERIAN DISASTER ASSISTANCE

Several people have asked me the best way to respond to the needs created by Hurricane Florence. My best suggestion is to use the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance ministry of the PCUSA. Our denomination has full time employees who administer financial and volunteer resources to respond to emergencies. Let me give you an example. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the PDA had volunteer work teams in operation for over two years, rebuilding people's homes and churches. The ministry had sites arranged so that when volunteer groups arrived, they had places to stay and meals prepared. The volunteers could actually do the work of rebuilding. Materials were on site and volunteer leaders were ready to show the new arrivals where to begin.

When there is a catastrophe, many groups rush in with a band aid and a bottle of water and then leave. The Presbyterians take a longer view of things and try to intervene in a more permanent way. Instead of a band aid and bottle of water, we are more likely to build a hospital and dig a well. The PDA is committed to helping people get their lives back to a level where they can be safe and productive.

If you would like to contribute to this ministry, make your gift out to Yeamans Park Presbyterian mark it PDA. 100% of the contributions go to disaster relief. If you would like to volunteer, please see me, and I 'II put you in touch with the right people.
