The Meal Tells the Story
Many of you gathered with family (in small numbers, right?) last week to celebrate Thanksgiving.  It is a special day with special food.  Important food.  Food that tells a story.
Did you ever think about it?  The foods which have become the center of the tradition are the ones that are unique to the New World- turkey, sweet potatoes, corn, pumpkins, & cranberries.  The meal tells the story of our thanksgiving.
This Sunday is the second Sunday of Advent, and we will gather in-person and online for another meal- the Lord’s Supper.  It, too, tells the story for our thanksgiving.  As believers in Christ, we hold up the bread and the cup as central to the story of our salvation.  Jesus came to give his life for us.  His body was broken and his blood was spilled for us and for our salvation.  It is the chief reason we can give thanks- today and every day.
With a grateful heart,

Pastor Daniel
