A Christmas Greeting from Pastor Paul and Laura Harris
We give thanks for each of you as we share the blessing of living and working among you in Hunt, TX. What a place this is to reside and abide in the redemptive mission of God. These 2-1/2 years in West Kerr County have been for us the best of times. We look forward to many more years with you! As we celebrate together in this season of Advent and Christmas, please know how much we love and care for you and for this church and for this community.
The evidence of God's faithfulness is all around us - the hope, peace, joy, and love we celebrate during Advent are manifested in the coming of our Lord Jesus. Whether accepting Christ for the first time or receiving a newborn attitude in Christ, receive your Lord! Claim in faith the grace given in Christ and share that love with all you meet this season and in the days and years to come.
When Jesus was asked - "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?" Jesus said, "The most important one is 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:28-31)
My prayer for this congregation is that together we might Love God, Follow Jesus, and Be in Ministry with our Neighbor. Praise be to God from whom all blessings come!
On behalf of the Harris family, including our son Benjamin, and our parents Rev. Boyd and Anabel Harris, we wish for you a very Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year!
Pastor Paul & Laura
