Happiness Is Born From Gratitude


When we are feeling unhappy we can believe that the path back to happiness and joy comes through trying harder: work harder, play harder, learn more, give more. However, the simplest path to happiness and joy is through gratitude. Looking for the blessings that are all around, the big and the small, and appreciating them.

When we can let go of control of people and outcomes and trying to manufacture happiness and realize that happiness flows into a humble heart – a heart full of gratitude, then things will shift. Take a look around. You may be surprised by joy with all you see.

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” [Gospel of Matthew 6:33]

Please join us for our Thanksgiving service this Sunday, November 22nd at 10:30 a.m.

    Do we bring fruit on Thanksgiving? What charity does it support? Look forward to worshipping at your church this Sunday.

      Hi Gillian,
      We don’t hold a service on Thanksgiving Day. We celebrated yesterday, the Sunday before.
      This coming Sunday will be the first Sunday of Advent and the Rev. Grant Odhner will be leading the service.
      Happy Thanksgiving!
