Give Thanks

November 26, 2020

Happy Thanksgiving!

By Erin Bird

We interrupt our current Advent Conspiracy series (again), to simply wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Take some time today to thank God for Jesus, for His love, and for whatever else comes to your mind and heart. And if you can't think of what to thank God for, look around, look back, and look deeper. (If that doesn't make sense, listen to last Sunday's sermon.)

But on this Thanksgiving holiday, I want to encourage you to do one more thing. I want you to "give thanks" by telling someone "thank you." It might be a parent for all he or she has done for you. It might be a mentor who invested in you. It might be your spouse for helping you. It might be a co-worker or classmate who served you. It might be a neighbor or anyone that God places on your heart.

As important as it is to "give thanks [to God] in all circumstances," it is equally important to "give thanks" to those God has used in your life. So shoot someone a text, or email, or even a phone call today just to say "Thank You!"

We are on a mission to help people love like Jesus loved and live like Jesus lived.

It doesn't matter to us if you:

  • are a Wartburg student or a grandparent,
  • vote Democrat or Republican,
  • are married, divorced, or single,
  • have gone to church for years or haven't been to church in years,
  • make $100,000/yr. or wonder how you're going to pay rent this month,
  • or fear your past mistakes make you unlovable to God or others.

No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we want to help you become who God has created you to be.
