Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I would like to share with you the reflection that we did during our Zoom Coffee Hour following our Sunday service on July 14, 2020.
During the Coffee Hour, we talked about how to create an attitude of thanksgiving. I mentioned that my spiritual advisor had suggested that one way to develop an attitude of thanksgiving, is to have a journal by your bed. At night, before you go to sleep, you can write down three to five items that you are thankful for that happened to you over the course of the day.
I read from Psalm 100 and we shared our thoughts about what we are thankful for right now. I am also sharing with you, “The Litany of Thanksgiving” from our Book of Common Prayer, which is an all-encompassing prayer of thanksgiving. I hope that these words will give you pause to think and to be thankful to God for the many gifts so freely bestowed upon you.
Peace and love,
Listen to Deacon Lauren’s reflection.
