Thankfulness: A Countercultural Practice-In-Person and Virtual Worship

The Reverend Johnny Skinner of the Mount Zion Baptist Church often says, “The scripture says “Give thanks in all circumstances.” It does not say, “Give thanks for all circumstances.” This Sunday we will explore the value of being thankful even when the paint spills, the roof leaks, the copier breaks down and the knees are worn out. In the aftermath of the culture of consumerism manifested in Black Friday we will celebrate thanksgiving as a countercultural practice. This is an intergenerational service appropriate for all ages. This will also be an opportunity to participate in the Guest at Your Table program to support the work of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee

(You can watch our worship service streamed at 11 am on our Facebook page, or our website and also on our YouTube channel
