A note on thankfulness.

What is gratitude? Most dictionaries will tell you that it’s the quality of being thankful, ready to show appreciation for and return kindness. Scholars, Christian leaders, Scientists have deliberated throughout history on gratitude. More recent studies have shown the overall health benefits of gratitude. Do you have a short story or experience of gratitude to share? If so, please email us at office@ovsda.org. Let us know if we have permission to share your story (anonymously) in church or here on our website blog. Your stories are valuable!

Over the next several weeks, we will talk about gratitude. As we see throughout the Bible, our creator provides us with opportunities to give thanks for many simple things. Let’s come together and rejoice in heartfelt thankfulness for God’s greatest gift, Jesus!

I look forward to worshiping with you as we take this ‘thankfulness’ journey together. See you soon!
