Nov. 22nd, 2020 Church Members present: Gratitude Changes Everything
Meister Eckhart a late 13th century Dominican friar says, “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough”. What are you grateful for today? What brings you joy and sustains you today? How do you show your appreciation to others, to yourself? This interactive service will be a time of sharing our personal joys whatever they may be. The gratitude for what we have, who we are and the gifts that each of us are given.
