Inspiring weekly podcast

Give thanks

When the cupboard was

bare at Thanksgiving

November 21 - 27

- with Kate Robertson

TWO topics are available this week:

Topic 1 -- Thanksgiving looked particularly grim for 18-year-old Kate. But God can bring delight even in the starkest circumstances. Join us to hear two heartwarming true-life stories that prove the healing benefits of real appreciation.

Topic 2 -- We've been counting our blessings here at Sentinel Watch, and they are many. We're grateful each week for our guests, who so willingly share what they're learning about God, and we're also thankful for all of you, our listeners—and we feel blessed when you share your own insights and responses to the podcast. Please join us as we celebrate together.
