Christian Reflections Placeholder

The official holiday known as “Thanksgiving” is still months away. However, for people of faith, giving thanks is a normal posture.

We all struggle in this busy world to pause and give thanks for what we have, or to simply say “thank you” to those who make our lives better. An old trend that is making somewhat of a comeback, with therapists assigning it to clients and spiritual directors recommending it to people seeking to grow in their faith, is a “thankfulness journal.”

Charles Christian anchors the evening news for News-Press NOW and also serves as an ordained minister of United Methodist Churches in Gower and Helena, Missouri.
