This past Tuesday, Kansas City had 800,000 people come together to congratulate the Royals during their World Series Victory Parade.
The city pretty much shut down…it was craaazy!
What would be a strong enough attraction for 800,000 people to take off work and school and come together to stand for hours just to get a glimpse of the players?
KC is thankful for the inspiration provided by our boys in blue. They brought us together as families, friends and a city. They gave us the gift of belonging and provided us hours of thrills and entertainment.
For Leigh-Ann and I and the kids, we were glad to spend our day cheering on the Royals one last time in 2015. It was an opportunity to let them know how much they are appreciated.
This Sunday at New Life we are going to kick of our ThanksGIVING capital campaign. Convincing people to give can be like trying to get 800,000 people to battle crowds and stand for hours with low blood sugar.
Why would you want to give of your time and money?
The only reason I can think of is gratitude.
Gratitude for all that God has done for you, your family, your friends and your church.
If you are new to this idea of generosity, it may seem strange, but it is actually fun to give.
Consider this video and see how fun it is for me to give the police officer the football at the parade…LOL.
I hope you are able to join us for the service this Sunday, I am sure you will be encouraged and reminded of how much we have for which to be thankful.
