“You take approximately 23,000 breaths every day, but when was the last time you thanked God for one of them? The process of inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide is a complicated respiratory task that requires physiological precision. We tend to thank God for the things that take our breath away. And that's fine. But maybe we should thank Him for every other breath too.” (Mark Batterson)
Before we carve the turkey, let’s carve a little sacred space in which to reflect on some things we’re thankful for that we often take for granted. We are richer than we realize. Let’s also be in prayer about the ongoing events in Ferguson and around our country. Jesus is needed – His Spirit, His wisdom, His presence.
Speaking of Jesus, a big thanks to Tim Ketchersid and Ryan Rainey, who closed out our series in the Gospel of Mark this past weekend! Both of their messages are now posted. If you missed them like I did, join me in listening online!
We’re in between series this weekend. I’ll start a new series the first weekend in December: “Christmas At Your House.” It’ll be a great opportunity for us to bring others to engage with the Christ at center of Christmas. As for this weekend, I’ll be sharing a piece of important news in the context of the message. Don’t miss it! How’s that for a teaser?
Grace and Peace,
See You This Weekend,
