Sometimes there's a passivity to appreciation that leaves nothing changed. There's a big difference between appreciating the blessing of family and committing to sitting down together for dinner at least three or four times a week. It's one thing to notice the beauty that fills your own backyard; it's quite another to pull yourself out of the rat race so you have time to enjoy it.
This week we will be having a "coffeehouse style" service, where we discuss topics in small groups and then share insights. We will explore abundance and gratitude in this season of giving thanks.
