RMCC hosted an event which promoted thankfulness--for both the big things and the small things. First, we shared verbally and on paper what prevents us from being thankful. We then went outside with those papers containing the unspoken worries and burdens, and we burned them in a metaphorical offering to God.
We then reflected on what we are thankful for. We all united in the fact that we are blessed beyond measure and that we want to live in the reality of that! We sang songs, had some great coffee, and enjoyed a wonderful spread of food! Everyone left encouraged and with a new perspective and goal of thanksgiving.
