Prayer Chaplain Thoughts

Tue, 12/02/2014 - 5:27pm -- Toni


We are approaching a couple of the most favorite and meaningful holidays of the year - Thanksgiving and Christmas!  For most it is a time of joy, being with family and friends, and celebrating with fancy feasts.  The operative words here are “for most.”  For some, the holidays bring forth feelings of loneliness and depression and the perception of lack.  So, what is ours to do?  Can we put our prayers into actions?  Perhaps we can be aware of those in our family, in our church, and in our community who might benefit from sharing our joys and bounty.  We might be more compassionate toward those who do not have the resources for a turkey dinner by providing same or inviting them to our table.  Taking part in the church’s Angel Tree Project or similar community projects may provide a child or nursing home resident with a gift under the tree.  Inviting someone to church or a free community holiday event may lift someone’s spirits by enjoying the music and festivities of the season.  We can remember to be sensitive to those who may be spending the first holiday without a loved one.  And, we can use our magical imaginations to create other ways to share.  But, most importantly, get the children involved!  The greatest gift we can give our children is a good example.   Please know your Prayer Chaplains hold you in the light and love of God during this joyful holiday season.

Love, Light and Peace to All,
