Pastor's Message - Chris Kibble

 Mark Batterson once wrote, "You take approximately 23,000 breaths every day, but when was the last time you thanked God for one of them? The process of inhaling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide is a complicated respiratory task that requires physiological precision. We tend to thank God for the things that take our breath away. And that's fine. But maybe we should thank him for every other breath too"!

I think this is a very helpful reminder for our Thanksgiving celebrations this weekend. As Psalm103:2 says, "Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all His benefits". Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
