Sunday Nov 23 – Gratitude

cornucopia 3With Thanksgiving coming up next Thursday, the Fellowship will celebrate a day of gratitude. When hearts are open in thankfulness, individuals open themselves to the presence of God within, for gratitude is an expression of hope and joy and love.

Giving thanks isn’t just about having the things desired in life or knowing that needs are being met, though. Giving thanks is about recognizing one’s true identity and purpose. It’s knowing that God loves everyone, and then returning that love and expressing it in the world.

Real gratitude can be found within, regardless of external circumstances. One might recall the stories heard of people who are grateful even in prison or in the midst of war. They’re not deluded; rather, they simply recognize the truth.  “My life is richly blessed” will be our mantra for the day!

Let’s begin thanksgiving by opening to God’s love, and by remembering what gratitude is really all about.

Sunday Gathering at the Sedona Library, 9:30 a.m.
