Notes from Pastor Ashley Wilcox
In this week of Thanksgiving, I have been thinking about all of the things I am thankful for at New Garden Friends Meeting. Here are just a few of the things I am thankful for:
• The Care Fair. Thank you to everyone who planned, volunteered, and signed up at the Care Fair! It was wonderful to see you all caring for each other.
• A cleaner meetinghouse. Have you noticed how nice the carpets look? That we no longer have dust in the corners? Thank you to everyone who helped to coordinate the deep cleaning and carpet cleaning! It makes the meetinghouse so much nicer as a place to work and worship.
• The tech team. Thank you to everyone who keeps all the tech going for worship, education, and memorials. It is a huge job, and you make it possible for us to connect across distances and to care for grieving families.
• All of you. Thank you to everyone who has welcomed me, shared your stories, and dreamed about ways that we can grow together as a meeting. You are the heart of New Garden Friends Meeting, and I am grateful for all of you.
Advent and Christmas are right around the corner, but I am grateful for this moment to pause, breathe, and give thanks.
