Finding Thankfulness

Speaker: Pastor Dan Stockum

Series: God Speakers: Minor Prophets

Scripture Focus: Habakkuk 3:17-19

Not all of us approach the holiday season with a spirit of joy and thanksgiving. Many of us face struggles that make it difficult to give thanks. Habakkuk was no different. In fact, his circumstances were likely more challenging than anything most of us will face. However, even in that season, Habakkuk was able to give thanks with sincerity. This week, we’ll study this ancient prophet and find that his source for joy is still available today.

Let’s send the Steins off with all of our love! Meet upstairs in the Family Center right after the worship service. This will take the place of Fellowship Hour on the patio. All are welcome.
