NYMC07 #5 - Thanksgiving

Observation: Americans are good at giving thanks. Culturally they have a day set aside each year to express thanksgiving and it seems that they are much better at acknowledging people in ministry than we are in Australia. Josh Griffin and The Skit Guys are both good at simply saying 'thank you' to youth pastors and volunteers for the work they do in loving teenagers and loving Jesus.

Is it trite? I don't think so. I think we have much to learn from the Americans in how to show our thankfulness to people for their work - and ultimately God for his work.

Shout out to CCECYOUTH leaders. Thanks for your work with Central Coast teenagers - I am truly thankful to God for the way you share the gospel of Jesus and your lives with them.
