Grace and peace to y’all during this month of September!

I just wanted y’all to know something this month. I love y’all. I really do.

Sometimes I don’t think we hear that enough. At least not from one another, and when we do hear it – especially from places we don’t expect – we kind of shake it off and say, “That was weird…”

We probably don’t say it enough either. Blame it on the English language and its vague and multi-faceted definition and interpretation of that little four letter word.

But, I love y’all. I love the ministry we get to do here in Newberry in service for those in need and in celebration and thankfulness of what God has done and continues to do in our lives. I love all of it.

September begins that time that the ‘program’ year in the life of the church starts to ramp up. There are more opportunities to participate in ministry through our faith formation ministries, our community compassion ministries, our congregational care ministries and more.

God is at work here and we can and we get to be a part of it all.

As we approach those ministries, remember that you are loved. Loved by one another and loved by our God.

As we move through this life of faith, let’s try to tell one another – the ones we know really well and the people who we don’t at all –, “I love you.”

Spread God’s love for the world and all of creation through your words, your actions, your thoughts, your life of faith.

Imagine what that world would look like?

Bless y’all!

Love you. Mean it.
