Thank You for Community

Season of Gratitude

Lord, I am grateful for my children who challenge me to grow in so many ways, who challenge me to be more than I am.

Lord, I am grateful for the struggles of married life that challenge me to always be open to new ways of relating. These struggles promote change, growth, new life.

Lord, I am grateful for this community of faith in which you have placed me. Together we struggle with what it means to be faithful. Together we struggle with what it means to forgive–and forgive–and forgive. Together we struggle with what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Together we fall; together we help one another stand up once more.

First, I give thanks to my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is heralded throughout the world.    Romans 1:8
