Giving thanks

November 16, 2020
There's no question 2020 has been a challenging year. But we still have much for which to give thanks. We asked you, our South Georgia UM family and friends, what you’re thankful for during this season of giving thanks. We are thankful for our wonderful #sgaumc family! Here’s what you shared with us:

I am thankful for the new friends I have made by participating in online events and studies. Karen Forrester, Bainbridge First UMC

I am thankful for all the volunteers and ERTs that have worked tirelessly this season to be a caring Christian presence in the aftermath of disasters. Even a worldwide pandemic can’t stop us from being the hands and feet of Christ! Kelly Crane, Trinity UMC, Savannah

Thankful that my faith overcomes fear in uncertain times. JoAnne Lewis, Lone Hill UMC

I am thankful for my family and friends and God's blessings. Joyce Suttles, Douglas First UMC

We are thankful for our wonderful family!! That includes our beautiful Powersville/Wesley Chapel UMC family! We are so blessed to count them as ours!! We thank God every day for allowing us to be their pastoral family!! Kathryn Beck, Powersville/Wesley Chapel UMC

I am thankful for so much this year! Thankful that we got extra time with our 2020 graduating senior as he is doing his first year of college online; thankful that our daughter was able to have a marching band season; thankful that all of my friends and family have remained healthy through this season; thankful that through technology we still get to hear wisdom from our spiritual leaders in a time when we need their wisdom most! Connie Howard Walker, Richmond Hill UMC

I’m thankful for the South GA Conference!!! Rev. Larry Stricklin, pastor of Morgans Chapel UMC

My family, my health, and the Lord Jesus Christ in my midst continually! Barbara Neal Mullinax

I am thankful for the amazing blessings God pours out upon me each and every day. In such abundance, I often fail to stop and recognize them all. Family, friends, good health, an amazing church, opportunities to use my blessings to BE a blessing, and hot showers. Definitely thankful for hot showers! Thankful for a God who loves me unconditionally, and continues to bless me far more than I deserve! J. Knapp, Conference Lay Leader, Thomasville First UMC
