Good Morning Church:

On this September morning, many of us are reflecting upon the attacks in New York, Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon that dramatically changed our lives and perspectives 13 years ago today. As I spent time in reflection and prayer this morning, I continued to lift up those who are on constant vigil against and who strive to protect us from the "evil powers of wickedness" that manifest in the tyranny of terrorism that permeates our lives today. I prayed for the families of the victims of 9/11 that as they remember that terrible day, as they gather in New York, and Pennsylvania and Washington and listen to the names as they are being read, that they might find comfort and a sense of peace through God's grace and love. I thanked God for the men and women who, without thinking of the danger to themselves, rushed into burning and collapsing buildings to rescue their fellow men and women. And I prayed for our leaders past and present as they continue to deal with the ever-present threat of global terrorism. And I prayed for peace. I closed my time of reflection and prayer with the Lord's Prayer, paying particular attention to the line, " Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." I encourage you to take some time today in prayer and reflection.


In other news:

We welcome back to HFUMC SaraBeth and Ali our Jones Scholars Interns form Young Harris College. SaraBeth and Ali will be working with us as they have in the past as part of their work at the college. You will mostly see them in worship, but they will also be engaged in other areas of ministry as well. We are happy to have them back and look forward to a great semester!

Yesterday (Wednesday) was the beginning of what I like to call…"Holy Chaos." The MissionAires have returned! The vans rolled to the school and picked up about 20 K-4th graders and brought them over to HFUMC for fun, fellowship, singing and serving. We are looking forward to their first time to bless us in worship.

That is all for now. Be the face of Christ.
Kirk
