Grace and Gratitude
September 8, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
This six-week class will explore two important theological terms of Reformed and Presbyterian identity and conviction: “Grace and Gratitude.” These two words have an important history within our tradition; and they live on in vigorous ways today. The terms together are “our gift to the wider church.” We see the essence of Christian faith captured in the combination, “Grace and Gratitude.” This is our witness to God’s extravagant love expressed in Jesus Christ–grace; and our response as Christ’s disciples, committed thankfully to doing God’s work in this world–gratitude.
We see ourselves as receivers of grace daily, and express gratitude to God for this grace in Christ by our actions and commitments. This combination brings meaning and significance to all we receive and do. Grace and gratitude energize us to receive God’s love and express that love continually in worship, work, and service to Jesus Christ.
The class will be offered via ZOOM teleconference on Tuesdays, at 11:00 a.m. for one hour.
