Our Sunday worship begins again on Sunday, September 9th with our Homecoming Sunday—details in the article on page 2.
Living a Life of Gratitude and Joy
Last Sunday was the anniversary of the day that hurricane Harvey hit south Texas. It left carved a path of destruction and devastation. Many of us have family and friends who suffered great losses in Harvey’s wake. There were many times when I asked you to pray for my nephew and niece-in-law whose home had 3 feet of water inside. Many people are remembering what happened, but even in the face of great loss there is much to remember that was heart-warming and good. This is what my nephew wrote last week about their experience.
“Twelve months have passed since Hurricane Harvey came ashore at Rockport. Only those who have joined the club of calamity can truly appreciate what we have experienced. Some weathered Harvey well. Many lost much, and a few have lost everything. In such circumstances some decisions can be painful. Marsha and I made a difficult decision to leave our home of almost 14 years and chase new opportunities elsewhere. For me, this leaving will always be associated with strong feelings and emotions: dread, sorrow, betrayal, helplessness, and abandonment on the dark side; and hope, joy, commitment and empowerment on the light. Healing will take time, but my continued wish is that I bend nimbly to the light. I do not think I would have seen any light had it not been for the army of people who
came to our aide during those most dark times.”
Taylor then goes on to list the names of many of the people who helped them. Even when we experience the worst that life has to offer there is much for which we can be grateful.
We can choose to practice gratitude.
Bread Fellowship will celebrate “Homecoming Sunday” on September 9th.
This year is our 9th Anniversary.
Bread is a group of front-porch kind of people who are seeking to understand what
it means to walk in the way of Jesus.
Invite you family and friends and anyone you know who might like to become a part of
this welcoming family that we call “BREAD”
After worship stay and join us for lunch. It will be an old fashioned
“Pot Luck” which means everyone brings something to share (salad, vegetable, or
dessert). Bread will provide the meat.
