gratituesday -- our local church

WE make up the church.  Christ's church is His body of believers.   that's me.  i'm one of those.

our little body of believers that we worship with are doing a study on family.  i suppose it's not really a study as much as it is an emphasis.  our pastor has been lead to do a sermon series on God's purpose for family. 

i am so very grateful for a church body that believes in His Word.  one that will stand up when things are wrong and go to the Truth to fix it.  there is a problem with the way families are working these days.  it's time for us to fix them.
i am soooooo thankful that we have a pastor that feels God's leading and then dives in.
i am ever so appreciative for a family of believers who are intent on listening to the Truth and not running and hiding from it.

there is a lot of room for improvement, as we are all sinners, but i'm thankful for what we do have in Him.

on another similar but different note:  have you gone to see the movie "courageous"?  i recommend it.  it was a great movie.  funny and sad.  very moving.  very convicting.  very truth-telling. 

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Haven't seen courageous yet but want to because everyone I know who's seen it loved it.
