eGrace for 10/12/2017

Hey, Grace’rs

As a follow up to the message this past weekend we’re going to take a 3 week look at the explosive, transforming power of kindness and how it can change our relationships at home, work, and in the world. It will launch Nov. 4/5. The reason for the heads up? I want to strongly recommend you purchase an excellent book on the topic by Shaunti Feldhahn called, The Kindness Challenge. She presents a practical 30 day challenge for implementing the power of kindness in your relationships. You can order it here (and remember to put Grace as your charity).

This weekend I’ll be interviewing one of your staff members who has a profound Reformation Story to tell. Families with last names starting with L-R have the food table this weekend.
