“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” I Thessalonians 5:18

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, the theme of gratitude surrounds us. Researchers tell us gratitude is good for us physically, psychologically, and it contributes to healthier relationships. People who practice gratitude as a way of life are less bothered by aches and pains, have lower blood pressure, take better care of their health, experience more joy, optimism and happiness, and they are more generous, compassionate, and forgiving. With a list like this, you’d think we’d all want to become more grateful people! Becoming gratitude oriented, however, is harder than it sounds. It requires a whole new orientation toward life. Fortunately, our faith shows us the way. Come join us for Gratitude Sunday as we reflect, celebrate and praise God for all we have received.
