I think most of us would be thankful for family and friends who are there with us, standing beside
us in both the good and the bad that life brings to
us.
I think most of us would be thankful for our
health. I know I joke around and tell people how old
I feel in the morning when I get up, but as someone
once said, “If you can count your fingers and toes,
and if your mind is sharp enough to do that, then
give thanks.”
I think most of us would be thankful for this
community of faith, this church that has been here
for the past 145 years, for our brothers and sisters
in Christ who profess their faith and re-affirm their
faith here, Sunday after Sunday.
I think most of us are thankful for the very
gift of life itself, which comes from our creator.
And finally, I think most of us are thankful to
God for saving us from the power of the devil and
promising us the forgiveness of our sins and bringing us to everlasting life, through faith in Jesus
Christ.
Let us be ever mindful that God gives us so
much each and every day. Sometimes we see the
blessings and at other times we do not see the blessings from God, but nevertheless, the blessings are
there.
Let us always be thankful.
On Sunday, November 2nd, we will remember
and give thanks for those saints who have gone before us in the faith, our brothers and sisters in Christ
who lived in the faith and who have died in the faith,
giving to us an example of how to live.
On Tuesday, November 11, we will remember
and celebrate Veteran’s Day as we give thanks for
those who wore the uniform of the Army, Navy, Air
Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and the Reserve
Component as well as the National Guard, those who
served and sacrificed for this nation, so that we
would stay free and strong.
And on Thursday, November 27th, we as a
nation will pause and give thanks on Thanksgiving
Day for all the blessings that God has bestowed on
us as a nation.
My question to each and every one would be
this: “What are you thankful for?” I think most of us
would say that we are thankful, first of all, for living
in the United States of America. From my own personal experiences, I have lived in and been in other
countries around the globe that made me glad to be
an American.
I think most of us would be thankful that God
has blessed this great state with a good economy,
job opportunities, and just a great place to live and
to raise a family.
I think most of us would be thankful for the
ability and the opportunity to work, regardless of our
vocation, and to be a productive citizen in this community.
In His Service,
Pastor John

The area churches are again sponsoring the
Mission Meals on Saturday, November 15. This is
always a time of wonderful Christian fellowship, and
those who prepare and distribute the meals are
blessed just as much as those who receive the
meals. The churches have already signed up for the
food they are to prepare, but we still need volunteers
to fill plates and take them to the 100 or so folks in
the community who look forward to the meal and a
brief visit. We will meet at the Industry United Methodist Church kitchen at 9:00 to fill plates and then
go out to deliver them. If you can help, please contact Jean Nell Wittneben at 836-7302 to sign up.
(This is a good occasion for Youth Groups to help
serve the community.) It always feels good to be
able to do the Lord’s work. Come join the fun if you
can.
Welcome Lutheran Church is asked to furnish
3 gallons of cranberry sauce and 120 bananas. People to help deliver the meals to the shut-ins is also
appreciated.

The Colors of Advent
With the shift to blue for Advent in most nonCatholic churches, some churches retain pink among
the Advent colors, but use it on the Fourth Sunday of
Advent. It still remains associated with Joy, but is
sometimes used as the climax of the Advent Season
on the last Sunday before Christmas.
Red and Green are more secular colors of
Christmas. They derive from older European practices of using evergreens and holly to symbolize ongoing life and hope that Christ’s birth brings into a
cold world. Although red and green are often used
as part of the church decorations (see below), they
are never used as liturgical colors during Advent
since those colors have other uses in other parts of
the church year.
Historically, the primary sanctuary color of
Advent is Purple. This is the color of penitence and
fasting as well as the color of royalty to welcome the
Advent of the King. Purple is still used in some traditions (for example Roman Catholic). The purple of
Advent is also the color of suffering used during
Lent and Holy Week. This points to an important
connection between Jesus’ birth and death. The nativity, the Incarnation, cannot be separated from the
crucifixion. The purpose of Jesus’ coming into the
world, of the "Word made flesh" and dwelling among
us, is to reveal God and His grace to the world
through Jesus’ life and teaching, but also through his
suffering, death, and resurrection. To reflect this emphasis, originally Advent was a time of penitence and
fasting, much as the Season of Lent and so shared
the color of Lent.
In the four weeks of Advent the third Sunday
came to be a time of rejoicing that the fasting was
almost over (in some traditions it is called Gaudete
Sunday, from the Latin word for "rejoice"). The shift
from the purple of the Season to pink or rose for the
third Sunday Advent candles reflected this lessening
emphasis on penitence as attention turned more to
celebration of the season.
In recent times, however, Advent has undergone a shift in emphasis, reflected in a change of
colors used in many churches. Except in the Eastern
churches, the penitential aspect of the Season has
been almost totally replaced by an emphasis on hope
and anticipation.
In many churches the third Sunday remains
the Sunday of Joy marked by pink or rose. However,
most Protestant churches now use blue to distinguish the Season of Advent from Lent. Royal Blue is
sometimes used as a symbol of royalty. Some
churches use Bright Blue to symbolize the night sky,
the anticipation of the impending announcement of
the King’s coming, or to symbolize the waters of
Genesis 1, the beginning of a new creation. Some
churches, including some Catholic churches, use
blue violet to preserve the traditional use of purple
while providing a visual distinction between the purple or red violet of Lent.
This does not eliminate any sense of penitence from the Season. With the focus on the Advent
or Coming of Jesus, especially in anticipating His
Second Advent, there remains a need for preparation
for that coming. Most liturgical churches incorporate
confessional prayers into the services of Advent that
relate to a sense of unworthiness as we anticipate
His Coming. It is appropriate even in more traditional services of worship to incorporate confessional
prayers as part of the anticipation and preparation of
the Season.
Thanksgiving Memories
The table is set before me.
Heavenly scents fill the air.
Mama puts the cookies out.
Oh, sneak one, if you dare.
She's got the turkey basting.
The pies are smelling sweet.
The children gather round her,
Their clothes so nice and neat.
I hear the laughter echo
As we take our place at the table.
Daddy says, "Let's bow our heads,"
And Mama does, too, if she's able.
Daddy always thanks the Lord
For the food He placed before us.
Bless the hands that prepared it.
Then, we all say, "Amen," in chorus.
Daddy carves and slices turkey
As Mama passes the peas.
I look at her and smile,
"May I have a biscuit, please?"
My memories of Thanksgiving,
I hold dear to my heart.
I wish I could travel back
And, once again, be a part.

rehearsal on November 3rd.
I Count My Blessings
I count my daily blessings, Lord,
And try to count them all.
But, it's like counting all the stars at night
Or the raindrops, when they fall.
For, my blessings are so many
And my troubles are so few ...
That the good always outweighs the bad;
Due to blessings, sent from You.
So, Father, please forgive me
If I fail to count the ways ...
As you have blessed my life immensely,
Through your love that never strays.

Take A Moment To Thank
A Veteran
When you see someone in a uniform,
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,
Industry, Texas
Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.
