Hello Assumption Family,

 

1– This Sunday’s Feast

2– Thanksgiving

3– Weekly calendar with links to meeting and services

 

This Sunday is the 9th Sunday of Luke.  On this Sunday we remember the parable of the ‘rich fool’. In this parable we hear Jesus proclaim that whoever “lays up treasures for himself is not rich towards God”.  This statement calls us to humility, our riches are to be used so that God’s Will be done, not our own.  These next two Sundays stress this idea of Christian stewardship, but first we must be able to humble ourselves and ensure God is our Master and Lord and not our egos.  

This Thursday is our national holiday of Thanksgiving.  While we will certainly take a moment to share a meal with one another, we must also take time to offer Thanksgiving to God.  I am truly thankful this year as I reflect on the many blessings of God I have shared with you all over these last 6 years.  My He continue to shower His grace on our community for many years to come.
