On Sunday, we’re making time and space in the service for you to give thanks for what God is doing here. It is good for us to honour what God has already set in our hearts and done here before we ask him what the future holds. The elders and pastors want to set time aside simply to give thanks.
Like any Christian community, we have many faults. But this Sunday I want us to imitate Paul, who wrote this to the Corinthian church:
"I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus." (1 Cor 1:4)
In preparation for this Sunday, let’s take a moment to ask God to bring to mind something we value about this community: signs of his continued faithfulness, presence, and activity in All Nations and the whole Tabernacle.
And on Sunday, come prepared to tell this to another person, and for some to pray openly and lead us in giving thanks to God.
