    EBBC regrets to inform you that we are not able to sell fried turkeys for Thanksgiving

    this year. As many of you know, the EBBC team who conducted the turkey fry did so

    as a fundraiser to support one of our international missions projects—specifically

    HUG (Haiti Under God). EBBC will continue to accept any donations for HUG.

    Your Missions Committee has planned a new Missions Awareness and Fundraising Event for this December. This event, A Mission Affair…”Simple & Sweet” will take place on Thursday, December 15th from 6:00—8:00 pm and will include heavy hors d’oeuvres, followed by a raffle and auction with proceeds going to benefit the Lottie Moon Offering for International Missions. Our theme for the evening will be an Edisto Culinary Extravaganza featuring a live auction with donated items centered around our culinary theme. Baked goods, dinner reservations, lunch and dinner concoctions, exotic get-aways, and much, much more! But meanwhile…be thinking about food-related auction items you would like to donate for this great cause – cakes, pies, dinners, restaurant gift certificates, etc. Raffle items will be drawn every 10 minutes during the live auction—you do not have to be present to win. Raffle tickets for 10 large items will be available for purchase beginning November 15.

    We have a huge goal this year! Please help us to meet this challenge!

    EBBC’s A Mission Affair...“Simple & Sweet”

    Happy Anniversary!


    Edisto Beach Community Chorus is holding rehearsals at 3pm on Sundays at EBBC for our performances on Saturday, December 3rd at 3:00 pm and Sunday, December 4th at 7:00 pm. All are invited to attend—it’s not too late! Invite your musically inclined friends also as the road to the E.I. Community Chorus Christ- mas Concert continues rehearsals. It is fun; come join us!

    Poinsettias will be offered again this year for you to buy in honor of or in memory of loved ones. These poinsettias will be used to decorate our church and for you to

    take home on Christmas Eve. Pricing has yet to be determined as we are contacting a few suppliers. You may also complete a poinsettia card (available once we have pricing) & place both items in the offering plate. You may also

    order your poinsettia(s) by calling the office or on our website. Thanks! The Floral Committee

    The completion of the Temple under King Solomon was a most significant under-

    taking and the day of Dedication was one of the signal events in the history of

    Israel. The thinking, dreaming, planning, praying that went into the Temple was a

    stirring season for the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It brought joy

    to hearts and tears to eyes all over Palestine. The dedication events planned by

    Solomon captured all of this anticipation and pomp. There were extended times

    for worship, sacrifice and celebration. God was praised and the people repeatedly

    chorused "He is good, His love endures for ever". At the close of this monumental

    undertaking, at the conclusion of all of the songs sung to God, Sacrifices made for

    God and prayers prayed to God, in the quiet of the evening, God appeared to

    Solomon....and gave His response to all that had taken place. First, God said,

    "I've heard your prayer". We need reminding that He hears, He truly hears and

    this is why we continue to offer our prayers, because we know He hears. And

    then God said, "I like this place and I am going to show up regularly" (ok that's a

    loose translation of 2 Chronicles 7:12, but it is accurate). That's the good news,

    the thing they longed to hear, the thing we long to hear. God the Father declaring,

    "I hear you, I will be with you" And then the sobering part of God's words to Solo-

    mon. God says, "there may be problems in the future, there will surely be

    difficulties encountered by you". Solomon did not want to hear that, not on this

    day, a day of dedication and hope and promise. But God could see down the

    road, could see difficulties that would come in spite of His answering prayer, in

    spite of his promised presence and in spite of the spectacular building in which

    they now worshipped. And God's prescription for that day, His prescription for any

    who encounter days of difficulty, is this. "if my people, who are called by my

    name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their

    wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal

    their land". 2 Chronicles 7:14

    He will heal and He does forgive... when we humble

    ourselves and pray, and seek his face and turn from our

    wicked ways.

    May we all pursue the health and healing that God is bringing

    as we respond consistent with his prescription for our lives.

    You will have to look a little closer for the small things. Start your list of weird and unusual things to be thankful for. Start today and finish on Christmas Day. It will deepen your apprecia- tion for a God who provides all of your needs. James 1:17 (NIV) “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” Look for the gifts.

    Cleaning out under the house after Hurricane Matthew, I came across an old prayer journal from my first year as a Christian, 1972. My Sunday School teacher at FBC Jacksonville had challenged us to list 100 things we are thankful for. But there was a catch. The items could not be the typical things like your family, your church, friends etc. Those things are not trivial but I think she really wanted us to understand thankfulness on another level. Just a few from my list: electric curlers, backpack, chewing gum, softball and pay phones. Those are weird things. I wish I could remember why I listed them. In honor of Thanksgiving and in celebration of my 44

    th year as a Christian, for which I am

    eternally grateful, I’m starting a new list of weird and unusual things to give thanks. First on my list: pain. Yes, you read it right. I never thought I would find myself giving thanks for the physical pain I have in my body. It’s been three years now that my arthritis has really impacted my life. Looking back I can honestly say that the pain has served a purpose. Here is why I am thankful for this pain: It has made me a more compassionate person It has identified me with Christ in a new way It has made me stronger physically and spiritually Second thing. Curly hair – seriously, I am finally thankful. For those of you who know me well know I have a love hate relationship with my hair. Being born with naturally curly hair has been a battle for me. As a teenager, the long and sleek look was in and all I ever wanted was hair like Cher. The arthritis that has presented in my hands has made it really difficult to blow-dry my hair. Holding a brush and a blow-dryer for thirty minutes is a high price to pay for straight hair. Good news! I have naturally curly hair that looks just fine when I just let it dry. I am now finding delight in something that has given me much grief. I am grateful for the first time ever. Third - Mad driving skills – until we learned to drive a stick shift my dad wouldn’t let us get our drivers license. And being married to a Heath is even worse. All Heaths are required to have mad driving skills. That includes: driving a tractor, being able to back up a van WITH a trailer attached; being able to launch a boat from a trailer; parallel park a Lincoln town car, driving a jeep though ditches full of logs and a variety
