It may be tempting to think that investing in God’s kingdom does not make an impact. Here are a few thoughts I wrote this week, simply giving thanks for the faithful people of Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church whose generous gifts share God’s love and transform countless lives:
Because you give children learn of Jesus’ love,
Because you give there is music to praise God above.
Because you give there are warm places to meet
For those who need work or support for their week.
Because you give we provide welcome lunches
Extending hospitality with food and flowers in bunches.
Because you give our doors embrace all
With love and laughter filling each hall.
Because you give broken hearts can be mended,
And healing and care is lovingly extended.
Because you give angels rejoice and sing
For your gifts honor God who created all things!
With a grateful heart,
Pastor Cathy Johns
