A month of gratitude…

Giving thanks is an essential discipleship practice.
 

It’s easy to get caught up in our every day lives.  There are always tasks to be done, things to be fixed, groceries to be picked up, cars to be washed.  And yet, one of our most essential tasks as a Christian is pause each day to give thanks.

This month, we will take an intentional time to learn more about giving thanks to God.  In worship, we’ll hear stories of from the Bible about giving thanks- two weeks of “cautionary tales” and two examples of how to do it right.
And in your everyday life, I encourage you to find a way to give thanks to God every day.  Maybe it’s in a prayer journal, listing a new thing you give thanks for each day.  Maybe it’s on Facebook, lifting up something you are grateful to God for so that your friends and family can give thanks with you.  Maybe it’s in your morning devotions, beginning with thanks to God rather than a request or lament.
Giving thanks is a holy discipline.  As we say in the Eucharistic prayer, “It is indeed right and salutary that we should at all times and in all places give thanks to you O God.”  How can you begin, today?
Come, let us walk together in worship.
Pastor Kate Costa
