What We’re Thankful For

We wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who follow ReKnew and support our work through prayer, financial help, and also by spreading this message of the unfathomable love of God not only in word, but in the ways that you live it out. It’s a great privilege to be a part of such a beautiful community. We hope you’ll all take some time today to practice the ancient spiritual discipline of gratitude. And remember as you share a meal with those who may not agree with you, to put on display the character and love of God.

Peace,

The ReKnew Team

Gratitude

“When we learn to read the story of Jesus and see it as the story of the love of God, doing for us what we could not do for ourselves–that insight produces, again and again, a sense of astonished gratitude which is very near the heart of authentic Christian experience.” N.T.
