“I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” – Isaiah 43:19
Likely you have noticed that there is a rush in our culture toward the celebration of Christmas. Each year it seems the rush starts earlier with Christmas Trees and Halloween costumes wrestling for center stage in early October.
On this week of Thanksgiving, when we are given the gift of an intentional pause to remember that everything that we have and are is a gift, I wanted to speak from my heart to yours through this brief word. Some of you are aware that a few days ago, my father, Rev. Clarence “Clip” Higgins passed away at 90-1/2 years.
As we anticipate the celebration of Thanksgiving, I have been thinking about how thankful I am for the collaborative connections that our shared life makes possible to strengthen not only our own lives but the also the life of the world.
