Developing a Grateful Heart


Happy 23rd Sunday of Pentecost! 

Today we’re going to dive into an important spiritual discipline–being grateful.  It’s said that patience is a virtue, but so is gratefulness!  So today we’re going to take a look at Paul’s Letter to the church in Ephesus 5:15-21 to see how we can develop a grateful heart no matter what our outward circumstances are, no matter who wins the election, and no matter how conflicted the world is outside.
