Glad Tidings      November 2019

 Twenty-one Presbyterian women attended the Triennial Gathering of Presbyterian Women in the Synod of the South Atlantic the end of October at Epworth by the Sea on St. Simons Island, GA.
It was an incredible weekend filled with meaningful worship times, wonderful workshops, encounters with our Churchwide PW Moderator, some staff of PW and even a co-moderator of General Assembly!

 In October of 2022 we will be returning – what if someone (or some two) from each of our PW groups started now planning to attend? The total cost for the weekend is under $400 each. That works out to about $11 a month. Can your PW plan to save that to send someone?

 November is Thank Offering Month. How are you going to promote this significant offering to your PW and maybe even your congregation? So many causes have benefitted from these grants over the years! Every little bit helps.  Make sure your dedication ceremony reflects the receivers and thanks the givers. Make it special any way you can.

 Take the month of November to really count your blessings. Maybe in your daily prayers you thank the farmers, truckers, and venders of the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the health products and medications that keep you well, and all the “Stuff” we need..

 Bless our families, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church family, pastors, etc. for being a part of our lives and bringing us joy. Pray for our enemies and those who don’t love us that God may change their hearts.

 Remember to include our leaders in both Tallahassee and Washington, D.C. as well as all world leaders, friend and adversary, and those they lead as we pray for peace, justice and harmony in our world.

It is a great time to visit Tabernacle in the Wilderness, a true-to-size model of the Arc of the Covenant and you can go inside and see what sources tell us it really looked like. Well worth a day trip from anywhere in our presbytery. Also on the grounds are 500 old Bibles on display. Make your travel arrangements through lesliehale.com. It is just North of the sponge docks in Tarpon Springs on Alt 19 so you can round out your adventure with lunch, a boat ride, and shopping!

Are you coming to the Annual Gathering? It is Saturday, February 15 at Peace Memorial Presbyterian in Clearwater.
 The CT is planning a great day for all. Mark your calendars (remember to add it to your church calendar, too) and make plans to attend.
*Look for forms and details in the December Glad Tidings  next month.
