Are You Seasoned with Gratefulness?

by Shirley Stoddard November 5, 2013

Do you struggle to cultivate a heart of gratitude during the busy holiday season? It’s ironic that at a time when we should be especially mindful of all that Christ has done for us, we are often too busy to stop and reflect upon his incarnational gift.

Tenth Women is hosting Seasoned with Gratefulness, a festive holiday luncheon for women in the church. Bring along a friend, neighbor, coworker, or relative—anyone, really, who has not had the pleasure of visiting Tenth. Enjoy an early taste of the holidays, well wishes over heartwarming food, and pause to fellowship and encourage one another during this especially busy season.

Following lunch, Rebecca Marcos and Lori Kempen will lead us in a time of singing, and Tenth member Gwen Hinton Freeman will share her personal story. As a mom, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend, and educator, Gwen has not always had a heart seasoned with gratefulness. But Christ can and did transform her, which is what makes her story relatable and redemptive.

I hope I have convinced you to join us Saturday, November 16 at 12 PM, for Seasoned with Gratefulness. Register online or at the registration table Sunday, November 10 after the morning services. Cost is $10.

If you are unemployed or underemployed and would like to attend please email or call Christina, (215) 735-7688.

There are several volunteer needs related to this event. Consider signing up to bake a dessert or help with set up.
