This week the topic in worship is giving thanks in adversity.  We’ll look at the stories of the Widow’s Offering from Mark and the battle of Jericho from Joshua.  In both stories, people faced adverse conditions but still gave thanks to God, which is profound – because it’s easy to say “thank you” when everything is going our way, but it’s not easy to say “thank you” when things are not.  So, how do we give thanks when faced with adversity?I hope to see you in church on Sunday!
