Members and Friends of Austin Mennonite Church

I pray you are able to recognize many blessings for which to be thankful.

This next Sunday we will celebrate a thanksgiving worship service, another time to reflect together about the joys of relationship and the nurturing power of community. I trust you will be able to share in this experience with us. We express our gratitude in the spirit of these lines from Fred Green:

* *For the fruit of all creation, thanks be to God.

For the gifts to ev’ry nation, thanks be to God.

For the plowing, sowing, reaping,

silent growth while we are sleeping,

future needs in earth’s safe keeping,

thanks be to God.

For the harvest of the Spirit, thanks be to God.

For the good we all inherit, thanks be to God.

For the wonders that astound us,

for the truths that still confound us,

most of all, that love has found us,

thanks be to God.

--Fred Pratt Green, 1970

May it go well with you. Sincerely,
Garland Robertson
