Sermon Questions

Beyond Thanksgiving

What does it look like to live a life of YES in the midst of a nay-saying world? True gratitude goes beyond a list of blessings to a lifestyle of abundance: embracing what we’ve been given and living wide open inside the grace of an amazing God. This week reflect on these psalms of trust and then spend some time reflecting on what you can do/stop doing in order to truly live a life of gratitude. If gratitude is about trust, how will you demonstrate that trust in your daily life?  What new discipline or practice can you bring into your life?  Or perhaps, what “noise” do you need to get rid of?  Daily devotionals that accompany each day's reading are also available on Facebook. They are created by a great Ginghamsburg unpaid servant team. You do not have to be a Facebook user to access them. View here.
