Grateful: Give Thanks in All Things

Author Gretchen Crowe wrote that gratitude is “the stones on the path to a positive attitude.” She’s right, of course. But it’s more than that. It’s a command. God actually commands us to be grateful no matter what. Why? How? In this brief, three-week series, we’ll explore ancient words and hear from a young wife and mother who is facing cancer with courage, grace and, believe it or not, gratitude.

Any Way You Slice It
Ok, we’ll be honest. There are not many ways to make this message seem all that interesting. This is the one where we talk about our 2019 spending plan – what some people call a budget sermon. But there are three impossible-to-believe stories tucked away in this message that are worth it. Seriously, these are really great stories. So go ahead . . . hit play.
Source of Gratitude
Daniel used to stop by my office for a cookie. Every time I gave him one, his father, Jose, issued the same command: “Daniel – tell the man thank you.” Why? For the same reason God commands us to be grateful. In this special service, we’ll focus on why we can be grateful. No matter what.
The Science of Gratitude
We live in an interesting town. Faith is such a deeply held cultural value here that many of the best restaurants are closed on Sunday – and I’m not just talking about that famous chicken sandwich joint. On the other hand, the town was built on science and technology. Its nickname is Rocket City. Lots of people think science and faith can’t have a decent conversation. Not true. Science and scripture agree on more than you might think. Especially when it comes to gratitude.
No Matter What
Sisters who thanked God for a flea infestation? A young wife and mother who lives gratefully even though she has cancer? A dying man who spends his final days full of joy? How do these people do it? Join us for an answer that just might change everything.
Happiness Doubled by Wonder
It’s easy to be grateful when things are going well. But when your health fails or your marriage melts or your job vanishes, what’s there to be grateful for? In this message, we take a look at two ancient words to uncover the secrets to being thankful no matter what.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

Although we were coming from a more conservative background, we quickly noticed that there was an openness and sense of welcoming that made us feel very at ease. We embrace fully what seems to be an environment of healing for the broken. We believe in moving from maintenance to mission. We have been impressed by the engaged nature of the shepherds, staff and membership.

I want to learn more about God’s Word and hold Him close in my heart. Twickenham seems to be able to guide me by offering similar perspectives to which I can relate as well as unique views that open my mind.

I was very impressed with the love, compassion and how sincere the worship is.
