Give Thanks

Give ThanksHello,

Did you see the latest viral dance craze hit the world of social media this week? It’s called the ‘U Name It’ challenge, and it makes a refreshing contrast to the gloomy news headlines on TV and in newspapers.

From young to old, from newscasters to a global American pop star, all seemed to be putting inhibitions to one side and showing off their best moves in a dance that resembled preparing a dinner!

But this has been a dance craze with a difference. Why? Because the moves that hit the global dance floor were inspired by, of all things, a church song!

A remixed version of an American pastor’s song about American Thanksgiving got people dancing to a list of foods: “beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes,” in what can only be described as a dance of Thanksgiving.

Maybe we have two left feet, but that does not mean we can’t join the dance. Maybe it’s time to count our blessings and be thankful!

Let’s take the ‘U Name It’ challenge and join the rhythm of thanksgiving by seasoning our conversations with naming what God, the giver of "every good gift and every perfect gift, has given us.James 1:17 NKJV

Give thanks to God.

With gratitude,
Richard Fowler
