Happy Thanksgiving

A Loving Note From
Rev. Vickie Miller and Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson
November 19, 2018
Dear Congregation Family and Friends,
Thanksgiving is one of those sacred holidays that has an uncompromised message: Give Thanks! Maintaining an outlook of thanks and gratitude, as we know, is one of the most sustaining and healthy life choices we can make.  
 
At SunCoast MCC, we have much for which to be thankful, both in our personal lives and in the life of our church. Having recently hosted the Inaugural Venice Pride, our team gathered afterwards for a review, ending in a circle to offer thanks. We were thankful for the weather, for the support of the mayor and commissioner, for the many well-behaved pets, for making many new friends and acquaintances, and for a safe and joyful event. But mostly, we were thankful for each other. We noted how many people from church volunteered and how well we worked together to support our common mission.
 
Those characteristics are something that we, as your pastors, are thankful for each day! Thank you for supporting us personally in the so many different ways that you do. Thank you for upholding each other, in times of stress, illness and difficulty, but also in the times of celebration and joy. Thank you for the ways in which you provide for the church’s programs, facilities and services. In short, thank you for caring!
 
May this Thanksgiving holiday resonate within you the joy of gratitude, as together we count our blessings and give thanks to our wonderful, gracious God.  
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Vickie Miller | Rev. Dr. Nancy Wilson
