I hope you have had a great week. Marty and I have been scrambling to ensure that your next two Sundays are beautiful worship experiences. We have two wonderful preachers who will bring God’s Word to God’s beloved community, so the tone has been set. Our confirmands will help lead worship on the 21st under Nancy Ruth Best’s guiding hand and Matt and the Deacons will create worshipful space on the 28th. I can’t wait to hear how you experience each when I return from Florida.
I am grateful for the well wishes Lanny and I have received all week as we put the frantic final touches on our daughter’s wedding. Pray with me that your pastor holds both her roles–mother of the bride and officiant–well as we celebrate this holy union of Thompson and Jake. If you have the bandwidth, say a little prayer for them on the 28th as they make lifelong promises to each other.
If you are in the neighborhood of the Atria and want to drop by to check in on my mom, she will remain in Durham all week while we tend to last minute details in Florida. My brother will fly in on Friday to travel with her to Orlando.
We will see you the 1st of November upon our return.
Holding you close,
