Gratitude is our response of thankfulness for God’s goodness, love, provision, and grace. It is the undercurrent of all other faith practices—the well out of which they flow.

Planning a worship service on the faith practice of “gratitude” seems a lot like planning a Thanksgiving service in the middle of the summer. But if you pause to think about it, maybe there’s some wisdom in spending more of our worshiping lives together in gratitude and thankfulness. Those habits of expressing deep gratitude to God and to one another need to happen more than once a year—more than twice a year—more often in general. 

This does NOT mean we need to be joyful and celebrative all the time. Gratitude has a depth to it; a grittiness, a persistence, a hope. Even in difficult times, we can practice gratitude. It’s not gratitude FOR all circumstances, but gratitude IN all circumstances.
