This Sunday at Church: Pray for those who lost someone in their family this year

I have thought about this recently. My last biological grandparent (my mom’s mom) passed on January 1 this year (in her 90’s). This past week, my wife’s last grandparent has given us all a ‘scare’ (89 years old), and may be on her way (or may last another few years). This is the grandma whose husband was a Lutheran pastor for years, and when I was ordained I was given his ordination cross (3 years after he passed).

We have all had good relationships. Yeah, this has not been a great year in terms of death in the family, but everyone has been found in Christ so far, giving us that comfort.

We are actually in the process of finding someone new for our bookkeeping/accounting, but our Sunday offering collectors/counters are also very much appreciated!

Daniel

This Sunday at Church I want to encourage you to do the following: Share appreciation for those who serve with church financial book keeping The last few week’s Sunday post probably reveal to readers that the church I pastor is small.  That means its also hard to have deacons that can do the financial book-keeping.
