Days of Thanksgiving
Nov 1, 2020 | by Max Vincent
Thanksgiving is inseparable from true prayer ....
One who always prays is ever giving praise,
whether in ease or pain, both for prosperity and
for the greatest adversity. He blesses God for all things...“
— John Wesley
As we begin the month of November, I invite you to observe “Days of Thanksgiving.” Let’s not wait till November 26th and try to cram all of our thanks into one day; instead, let’s use these days to create grateful attitudes and engage in acts of gratitude.
To observe these” Days of Thanksgiving,” our Midday Meditations will be focused on thanksgiving. For the first 26 days of November, we have asked different members to share with us their response to the question, “What are you thankful for today?” We hope this will help you stop and express thanksgiving each day for what God is doing in your life.
We are also using the idea of Giving in Thanks as our Stewardship theme this year. As you think about how you can support the church in 2021, we hope you give with glad and thankful hearts for what God has done, is doing, and will do in and through St. James UMC.
