Modern research is showing that being a grateful person has its benefits for our physical, emotional, and relational health. What are the benefits of having a grateful heart from God's perspective? Pastor Ed Hedding from Pleasantview Baptist Church will walk us through scripture to point to the importance of practicing gratitude and how this influences our faith and relationship with our Heavenly Father.
You may be discouraged at the spiritual drought in our nation, but around the world, Christianity is growing faster than any time in history. Tuesday we will explore some of the reasons for this growth with former missionary Jerry Trousdale. Jerry will tell us about the growth of Kingdom movements around the world and what some of the barriers to the gospel are in the global north.
