The Pastor's weekly message

I love November. The October fall colors are gorgeous but they are overwhelming in their variety and beauty. November mutes the colors: browns, golds, yellows, and invites a deeper look and a slower pace as you take in the season.

I am also a hiker. All the vistas that you could not see in the spring, summer and fall when the leaves are on the trees now become open views. A clarity of sight opens up in November and through out the winter that you simply cannot see in any other season.

Many of our fellow parishioners have or are heading south for the winter. May they have safe travels and wonderful times in the sun and the warmth. But for those of us who stay, let us also enjoy the beauty of a crisp, cold, clear morning. Let us treasure this season that invites us to slow down just a bit, look a little more deeply to see the beauty around us, and to see vistas that in other seasons are blocked by all the abundant life that can distract us.

Enjoy November and let us give thanks to God for it all.

Fr. Chris
