Hope to see you there!

AT HOME FAITH FORMATION TIP: The Practice of Gratitude: Keep track of God’s good gifts using a format that works for you. Some ideas: keep a gratitude journal; express your thankfulness on paper strips placed inside a Gratitude Jar; write or draw things for which you are grateful on a paper tablecloth during mealtimes. Save your lists and drawings and revisit them when you need a reminder of God’s provision. (For more on faith practices from Faith Formation Ministries, visit crcna.org/FaithFormation/Practices.)
