Is Gratitude your Attitude?

        Wednesday 11/20/18  THANKSGIVING Message – Is Gratitude your Attitude [powerpress] Click HERE for Video   Is Gratitude your Attitude? Looking at three simple examples of gratitude and what a heart filled with it looks like. Actually one is a “non-example” or an counter-example. Turn to Rom. 1:16-25 Weymouth  “(16) For I am not ashamed of the Good News.
