I'll Be Home For Christmas: A Devotion from Concordia

December 11
+

From the entire Concordia family to yours: Merry Christmas! Today's post comes from Concordia Chaplain Rev. Ron Cox. Concordia has an excellent Chaplaincy Department that actively contributes to our patients' and residents' spritual well being. Enjoy!

Our celebrations of Christmas bring a lot of nostalgia. Hallmark knows that. Merchants sell us ornaments and keepsakes to last and to add to throughout the years. Nostalgia isn’t necessarily bad. Most of us have fond childhood memories of a golden age and “this old house” where we grew up. “Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home!”

What are Concordia Residents Thankful for This Thanksgiving? (2018)

November 21
+

From the Concordia Family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving! We have so much to thank God for at Concordia: our residents and patients who put their faith in our caregivers and services, our amazing team members, our committed volunteers and donors, our supportive communities in the areas we serve and so much more. Our prayer at Concordia is that the love of God shines brightly through us all this Thanksgiving season.

Oftentimes, the best perspective comes from our elders – those who have been around long enough to understand what’s truly important in life. So, we asked a few residents to tell us what they’re thankful for this year. The response run the gamut from sweet to silly and everything in between. We hope you enjoy them! And feel free to leave a comment below to add to the list.
