Message “A Meaning Behind ‘Thank You’ ” Rev. John Song
We will investigate a deep theological and spiritual meaning behind the words “Thank You”.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order,
confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home,
a stranger into a friend.”
~ Melody Beattie
“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was ‘Thank you,’ that would suffice.”
~ Meister Eckhart, the 14th century German mystic and theologian
