It's thanksgiving weekend and we will be spending time this week thinking about what it means to be thankful. On Sunday we will be considering the story or the ten lepers and look at the significance of the return of the Samaritan leper to give thanks. Jesus commends this person and tells him that his faith has made him well. But what about the other nine? They too were made well weren't they? Or did they receive a different measure of wellness.

We will meet on Thanksgiving Day as well, at 10am, to set time aside to just be thankful. Our lives however should be models of thanksgiving, our world should be seen through a lens of thankfulness. We will consider Paul's words in Philippians 4 as a guide for thankful living.
