What Is Money?

CREATIVE TENSION: It’s considered impolite to talk about money, but God doesn’t shy away from that taboo topic at all. As a matter of fact, money is one of the most discussed topics in the Bible. It’s good for God’s people to remember what money is: not a master to be served, but a form of stored service. How we use money reflects our priorities, and so it’s good for us, as we make an impact with our gifts this weekend, to ask, “What are we investing in?”

Thanksgiving Food for Your Soul

Can you reminisce about last Thanksgiving and Christmas season? Knee deep in the unknown impacts of the pandemic, many of us still experienced the slowest, most simple holiday season in years. We contemplated how to maintain this simple rhythm. So as the temptation looms to rush and ready ourselves for upcoming festivities, let’s push back against packed calendars filled with unnecessary stress and savor the celebratory moments we are creating.

  1. Feed gratitude.
  2. Feed flexibility. Our best laid plans may not happen.
  3. Feed patience (lots of it).
  4. Feed contentment. It’s difficult to remember the balance of need vs. want. We truly have everything we need.
  5. Feed encouragement. We’re fragile. A blessed word makes hearts soar.
  6. Feed forgiveness. This is the year. Extend forgiveness; experience freedom.
  7. Feed hospitality. Loneliness and isolation thrive. Be that solution for one person.

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15
When the turkey is gone and the mashed potatoes are cold, all that is left are the shared moments and memories of doing life together sharing Christ’s love.

Impact Sunday

 This Sunday, Nov. 21, is Impact Sunday at Timothy. These gifts from your heart can be contributed on Timothy’s website, mailed to the church office, or placed in the offering plate. Please identify your gift as 2021 Impact Sunday. Timothy’s leadership appreciates your help in reducing the current deficit. Thank you!

Gratitude from LUMAA

Thank you, Timothy, for donating a total of 249 items of winter necessities, ranging from coats to caps & gloves to blankets and even a pair of boots, for the recent LUMAA (Lutheran Urban Mission Agency Auxiliary) in-gathering. In addition, monetary donations totaling $73 as well as 26 baby receiving blankets were all packed into a CRV van. Timothy’s generosity is always gratifying and much appreciated!

Ministry Fair at Wyatt
