Thinking About NVCC 11/29/2015

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving Day. I think it’s our nicest holiday, for it has not gotten out of hand with commercialism. It still remains a time for family, a time for reflection, and a time to thank God for his blessings.

As we begin our holiday season I’m reminded of something Dr. Martin Luther King once said, “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” These are great thoughts for us to reflect on in the days that are ahead.

As we celebrate this year take a moment to remember Dr. King’s words, and then pray for the church. Remember our progress as a church is not inevitable and therefore, we need to continuously stand watch over it. Not resting on our story, but letting God write his story in us.

Giving Thanks,

Kirby

Thanksgiving is one of our nicest holidays. It has not gotten out of hand with commercialism. It still remains a time for family, a time for reflection, and a time to thank God for his blessings.

Thinking About NVCC 11/24/2013

I think of all of our holidays Thanksgiving is the nicest, for it has it all. There is a bit of patriotism, along with family, friends, sharing, and pie. Thanksgiving, for the most part, is a quiet day that has not been ruined by months of advertising nonsense, or garish decorations – I have yet to see a 10 foot blow-up turkey in anyone’s yard singing, Joy to the World. That may be because turkeys don’t share my point of view about the holiday.

Because of its quiet nature the holiday gets overshadowed by Christmas, and that is OK with me, for in times like these we need some quiet. We need time to be thankful about our country, our family, our blessings, seconds on pie, and that there are no singing turkeys. Have a quiet thanksgiving.

Thankful,

Kirby
