It All Comes From God – Greg Albrecht

Here in the United States this is the Sunday and the week after Thanksgiving. It's a time of the year when it can be so easy to forget that what we are eating and enjoying is what God has given us, for every good and perfect gift is from above…(James 1:17). Here in the U.S. we just experienced Black Friday—the day after Thanksgiving, a day when many people are off work and flood the shopping malls, trying to get a head start on Christmas shopping. Another year of Christmas hype is in full swing. It's a time when Christmas decorations, advertisements, and promotions urge us to buy and spend, and during such a time it's so easy to ...

Meals on Wheels – Greg Albrecht

Earlier this year my wife and I attended memorial services for the wife of an older gentleman who frequents the same gym where my wife and I exercise. Jerrat is one of a number of seniors who arrive early at the gym, virtually every day. We have joined this group about three times a week over the last 6-8 years.

Thanksgiving – Getting Our Bearings

When we give thanks, we must obviously remember to whom we give thanks. Thanksgiving is a time to pause on our spiritual journey and ask directions - and get our bearings.

Thankful For What?

The biblical nation of Israel entered into the Promised Land in spite of 40 years of rebellion and disobedience. Their Promised Land was not their reward for religious performance anymore than God's heaven is ours. May we never forget that it is God's grace that allows us to receive physical and spiritual blessings.

Always Giving Thanks

In his Thanksgiving message Greg talks about a heart of gratitude. Being thankful is one of God's gifts that separates us from neurotic, self-centered, spiritually unhealthful lives.
