Bishop Charles E. Blake: Are You Thankful?

In this sermon from our archives, Presiding Bishop Charles Edward Blake reminds us of what it truly means to be thankful (hear a podcast of the full sermon on SoundCloud, below):

As we prepare our meals for Thanksgiving Day or travel to join family and friends on this holiday, have we asked ourselves, “What am I thankful for?”

What were you able to overcome, through the power of the Lord, this year? What trials have you triumphed over? What miracles has God shown you, through the power of His son, Jesus Christ? What difficult times have you helped others to overcome?

How thankful are you for what God has done in your life? Are you thankful:

  • For physical or emotional healing?
  • For God’s grace and mercy?
  • For forgiveness?
  • For peace?

We invite you to share your testimonies with us below and to take some time to reflect, so that others may be encouraged too.

Please join us for Thanksgiving service at the Cathedral on Thursday, November 23rd at 10:00 AM. PLEASE CLICK HERE to learn more.


*REMINDER: West Angeles’ offices will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday, as we spend the time to celebrate with family. HAVE A BLESSED THANKSGIVING, FROM YOUR WEST ANGELES FAMILY!
