Worship


Gracious Living
Some of you are familiar with the work of Dr. Brene Brown, popular speaker and author of The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are. In her chapter entitled “Cultivating Gratitude and Joy,” she offers this observation: “Without exception, every person I interviewed who described living a joyful life or who described themselves as joyful, actively practiced gratitude and attributed their joyfulness to their gratitude practice.” The phrase that jumps out to me is “practice gratitude.” If you want more joy in your life, practice gratitude. That is what we will strive to do.

Nov 21 | Acts 4:32-37
Great Power and Great Grace
