11-23-14: God Loves A Cheerful Giver

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

Paul says that God loves a cheerful giver. Personally, I think God would be content with a grudging giver, but lets stick with what God loves. How do get to where we not only give of our time, talent, and treasure, but do so cheerfully? I think it gets back once again to thankfulness. During this Thanksgiving Sunday, where we celebrate our Harvest Festival in Bridge Hall after the service, we have an opportunity to thank Doug Miller for his many gifts to the church, we also have the opportunity to thank God for the addition of two new members of our congregation: Rev. Thomas Kugler and Peggy Potter. Finally, in the service itself, we will see an extraordinary clip from a TED Talk about gratitude. You will be thankful you did. See you Sunday.

Yours on the journey,

Pastor B.J.
