Dr. Christine Pohl 06-16Karl Barth wrote that if the essence of God is grace, then the essence of human beings as God’s people is our gratitude. Gratitude belongs at the center of our worship and also at the center of our life together. Communities that practice gratitude are life-giving and beautiful, but the practice of gratitude is often overlooked or squeezed out by other concerns.
