Yes, in the year of our Lord- Two Thousand and Twenty– has been, well, eventful.
This leap year (there was indeed a February 29) will be one to remember for many people and for many different reasons. Nearly 250,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, with many more having been affected with the loss of work, income, housing, and loved ones.
COCHUSA members who live along the U.S. Gulf Coast have collectively either dodged, been hit, or have feared the looming of nine named Hurricanes.
As a nation, Americans have also experienced a political-season that has managed to dominate the…entire…year. At the time of this writing- the U.S. Presidential Election is technically still underway.
Also, there are Murder Hornets somewhere in the Northwest. Many Americans have taken to social media to express their disdain, weariness, even vilification of the year- 2020.
This is a great time to insert a favorite line of church-going Saints everywhere, “But GOD…”
Members of COCHUSA would do well to remember that God truly is rich in mercy, grace and wisdom. Our times are in his hands. It is with this sentiment the COCHUSA Unified Media & Communications Team launches a social media campaign through the remainder of the year. This campaign brings together the best of our faith and doctrine: Holiness and Thanksgiving, which leads us to praise.

Thanks again for all of New Ways of Engagement. I also enjoyed and was Blessed by the Congress Thanksgiving Online Presentation on Tuesday evening.
I give thanks to the Most High God for blessing, keeping, protecting me and my family throughout this year. I’m encouraged to go on and see what the end will bring. To God be the Glory! He is so Awesome, so Loving and so Gracious!
I give thanks to God for his blessing over the years, but especially for this year, for keeping my wife. After two round of cancer treatments and 35 rounds of radiation we were blessed to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversavery November 19th, to God be the glory.
