Grace and Gratitude – Message in 10 Tweets
We loved the message pastor Bryan preached last weekend about gratitude. It’s a reminder to all of us as we get ready to conclude another year to be grateful for what has been given to us by grace. Real gratitude shows up on your words, but first it has to spring up from your heart.
The launch of our newly redesigned website is allowing to start a new series of posts. Every week, we’re putting together ten quotes from the previous weekend’s message. We hope you will share these with friends through your social media channels.
