Every Thanksgiving, millions of Americans focus on the people, things, and blessings in our lives for which we are thankful. That's a wonderful thing to do, and as many of you know, we've encouraged you to do that in the past with this Blessing Jar video (click here to view again).
But THIS year, we have a different challenge for you -- a 7 day challenge that focuses on who you are thankful TO. Learn more in today's video below and check your email inbox tomorrow for Day 2 of the Thanksgiving Challenge!
Today we're going to do something a little different for Mondays with Mark. In light of the multiple tragedies we have experienced in our nation recently, we've written a 2-page response with some tangible steps you can take to encourage you in the midst of these difficult times.
In addition, we would like to ask each of you to intentionally intercede in prayer on behalf of the victims of these recent attacks and their families. God's family is hurting, and we have the opportunity and obligation to support them in faithful, diligent prayer. Although we are not physically in one location as a body of Christ-followers, we can join in one voice to our Father in Heaven!
To get you started, we have included a short video about the importance of corporate prayer from our friends at Igniter Media -- simply click here to watch.
Next week we will resume with our regular Mondays with Mark videos with a special...
