  • A Season of Thankfulness

     As I write this, it is Friday morning, and Laura and I are on an airplane to Dayton, Ohio, to officiate the wedding of Dr. Errik Hood and Crystal-Dawn McKanna.  These two have been members of First Presbyterian Church for a few years now, since they moved to Logan from Ohio.  It’s been a joy to have them as part of our church family.  Errik is an elder, and they both serve on our Personnel Committee.  You might catch Errik around town performing in various musical settings—he is a professor and the Voice and Opera Program Coordinator at Utah State University.  Crystal is the manager of Bath & Body Works in the Cache Valley Mall.  It is a distinct pleasure and privilege to be asked to help officiate their wedding.

    November 1st is All Saints Day, when the church traditionally remembers those who passed away during the last year.   One dear friend who passed away was Betsy Franchina.  We held a memorial service for Betsy a few months ago, and we recently received word from her estate that Betsy left some funds in her will to First Presbyterian Church.  Session carefully discerned what to do with these funds and knowing about Betsy’s loves and passions in life they decided to set this money aside for a future stained-glass window project.  We don’t know when this might be (likely several years down the road), but this is a start to a window upgrade that would involve making our existing stained-glass windows in the sanctuary more efficient by turning them into double-pane windows, while retaining their existing beauty.  We are all very thankful for Betsy’s life and her ministry to all those around her, and we thank her for this gift that she left to our church.  If you have any questions about leaving a gift to your church in your will please talk to me or speak to someone knowledgeable about wills.  It was my great privilege to know Ray and Betsy.  They regularly worshipped with us and attended Bible Study for many years before they moved to Arizona.  Thank you, Betsy, and we give thanks in the knowledge that you have joined the company of the saints.

    There are a few events coming up that I would l like to invite you to.  The first is our FPC Thanksgiving Dinner, which will be at 4:30 on November 17 in Bruner Hall.  It’s a time for us to gather together as a church family around the tables, to celebrate God’s goodness, and to give thanks.  A special thanks to our Fellowship Committee for organizing this dinner.

    The second event is the Cache Community Connections Interfaith Thanksgiving Service, at 7 p.m. on November 24th at the Logan Tabernacle.  Buffy Evans will be directing our choir as part of that evening, and the program will include music, reflections, and prayers from a variety of faith traditions as we gather around the idea of being thankful to God for all that we have been given.  I hope you will join us for both events.

    Hope to see you soon in worship!  Grace and peace be with you all.

    Pastor Derek
