October is Thanks & Gratitude Month!

Isn‟t autumn a beautiful time to live in Kansas City? The leaves are changing colors and the days and nights are cooler; “blessed are we” is the phrase that comes to mind.

If we really think about it, we experience blessings every day of our lives.

  • Did someone make you laugh or smile this week?
  • Are you thankful for an answered prayer or a loving and helpful person in your life?
  • Do you admire an individual who works hard and willingly shares his inner-Jesus?
  • Were you able to do a good deed for someone else, and did this good deed give you a sense of well-being and happiness?

So often our troubles consume us. This month we ask you to take time to reflect on blessings ... events, persons, places ... and especially yourself. Bring that which makes you feel blessed to the Communion Table. Write it down on the prayer request cards, place it in the offering basket, and share the good news with the rest of us. Help us fill the basket each week with thanks and gratitude! We will do this through the month of October as we praise God for all the many blessings brought into our lives.
