PAUL SANNER
Dear God, thank you for today and every day. 
Please help us to keep our hearts, minds and hands turned to your presence,
listening to your call and working for your Kingdom.     
Scripture
Psalm 30
 I will exalt you, Lord, for you lifted me out of the depths
  and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
  you spared me from going down to the pit.
Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
  praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me, you made my royal mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
To you, Lord, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me; Lord, be my help.”
You turned my wailing into dancing;
  you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
  Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
Reflection
Closing Prayer
Dear God, please help me to live a life of reconciliation. Please help me to listen to others with an open mind, to listen fully, to listen without instinctively preparing a response or rebuttal. Please help me to remember that your Kingdom is built by the small acts of love and kindness we give to our neighbors, and living side by side in common respect. Amen.

Frozen Turkey Collection for Elizabethport
This year, when the need is greater than ever, PCW will once again be collecting frozen turkeys for our friends at the Elizabethport Presbyterian Center. Please consider donating a frozen turkey and/or nonperishable side items (e.g., stuffing mix, canned vegetables, pasta, canned fruit, etc.) 

With outside visitors having limited access to the Parish House, we must modify how we collect these items. 
  • A cooler labelled “FROZEN TURKEYS” will be outside the Parish House doors on the parking lot level.
  • There will also be a second bin for the non-perishable items.

TURKEYS WILL BE ACCEPTED MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, 9AM – 3PM ONLY! 
Please do NOT leave a turkey outside overnight. It will thaw, and be wasted. 
All donations must be received by November 20th.

Thank you for your support!
The Presbyterian Church in Westfield continues to burn as a light in the darkness as our community weathers this fearsome storm of illness. Our reach of care continues to extend far beyond our immediate borders. You can help us make a real impact in the lives of others by joining in our work through your time, your talents, and also in the fruits of your labors.
