Be Thankful

Thanksgiving—a time for family, food, football and faith. A time to reflect on the blessings God has given us. A time to simply say “thank you.”

As we enter the holiday season, I hope each of you can take a few moments to ponder the ways God has been faithful to you this year. As you gather with family and friends, remember to simply give thanks for the many blessings you have received.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I had the chance to ask Ridgecrest Conference Center leaders what they are most thankful for this year. Here are a few of their responses:
