          A Thanksgiving Prayer
          O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry;
          When I have work, help me to remember the jobless;
          When I have a home,
               help me remember those who have no home at all;
          When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer,
          And remembering,
               help me to destroy my complacency;
               bestir my compassion,
               and be concerned enough to help,
          By word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted.

                                                                       Amen

                                               The quote above is from the August 18,
                                               2005 comic strip “Ballard Street” by Jerry
                                               Van Amerongen. I found it as I was looking
                                               for phrases to describe the word joy. Joy is
                                               the emotion felt by the Senior Pastor Search



     a
                                               Committee as we welcome the Revered
                                               Fred Lyon as our Senior Pastor Candidate.

                                                 On November 15, 2009, the members of
                                                 Flossmoor Community Church installed the



     r
                                                 Senior Pastor Search Committee, the initial
                                                 phase in the process that would eventually
                                                 lead to the calling of a new Senior Pastor to
                      our fellowship. I think it is no coincidence that the Governing Board



     t
                      has called for a special congregational meeting on November 14,
                      2010 to consider Reverend Lyon’s election and call – almost one
                      year to the day after the committee was installed.




     h
                      It is with great joy that we recommend Reverend Lyon’s election
                      and call to the position of Senior Pastor of Flossmoor Community
                      Church.




     e
                      Over the past year, we carefully reviewed more than 100 resumes
                      and profiles, evaluated answers to specifically prepared written
                      questions, conducted telephone interviews, heard numerous
                      sermons from select candidates, and conducted in-person interviews



     x
                      with those candidates we determined to be the most qualified. It
                      was only after that level of diligence and a great deal of thought,
                      discernment, discussion and prayer that we sensed that God was
                      calling Reverend Lyon to be our candidate of choice.

                      Reverend Lyon is foremost a man of great faith and integrity. He
                      brings a love of Christ and an appreciation for the hopes and dreams
                      of our family of faith. Reverend Lyon is a down-to-earth individual
                      with great leadership skills, a focus on Christian education at all age
                      levels, a passion for worship and preaching, and a strong interest in
                      pastoral care. And importantly, Reverend Lyon senses God is calling
                      him to Flossmoor Community Church.

                      The other members of the Senior Pastor Search Committee and I
                      look forward to welcoming Senior Pastor Candidate the Reverend
      2010            Fred Lyon and introducing Fred and his wife Jan to Flossmoor in
                      mid-November. We thank you for your confidence and prayers over
                      the past year.
