Thanksgiving. If you only looked at holidays from the first 11 months, Thanksgiving would be my all time favorite holiday. There is so much to love about it. Great food, great company, great football (usually.) The only bad thing you can say about Thanksgiving is the cranberry sauce. (Sorry to all you who love it)
Another great thing about Thanksgiving is that is reminds us all to be thankful for the people and things that we have in our lives. So with that in mind, I want to take this opportunity to say a big Thank You to each one of you here at Royston Baptist Church. Now, if I were to try and thank each of you of individually, I would certainly need more than just one article, if not more than an entire newsletter. But I will do my best to try and give each of you here the Thank You that you each deserve.
I want to first thank you for making me a part of your Church and your community. Though I always felt loved in my past churches, this is the first Church I came to where I wasn’t the Pastor’s son, which always gave me a bit of a leg up on those around me. No, here I am simply Caleb and that is enough. You reached out to me and took me in, not because of whom I was related to, but because you care for me, and for that I am very grateful.
I also want to thank you for allowing me to be so involved in so many different ministries throughout the Church, through my summer internship, being Mission Man and Mega Muscle Man during VBS, assisting in the Children’s Ministry, to serving along side rest of the wonderful staff here as the Minister of Youth. It has been a wonderful journey so far, and one that I am thrilled to continue.
But most of all, I want to simply thank you for all of the love and support that each of you have shown me throughout my time here, both before and after my hiring here at Royston Baptist. Words cannot express how much I appreciate it all and there are not enough times I can say Thank You, so I will simply end with this: Thank you, thank you, and a thousand times more, thank you.
Shalom, (peace be with you)
