St. Nicholas Episcopal Church of Kapolei Hawaii has held "Covenant Group" meetings for about 10 years. These groups meet weekly for fellowship, prayer and reflection on the readings and the sermon from the previous week. This blog is an attempt to offer the prayer and reflection as an on-going basis. The challenges of schedules and more prevent many members from participating in our groups, perhaps this will allow for additional participation. I will post readings and questions - please answer the questions and contribute as you're comfortable in the comment sections. Blessings

Look - Faith and Gratitude

Gratitude is important, we often remind chidden to say "thank you". 

1. How do you express your gratitude to others?
2. Do you know someone who expresses gratitude extravagantly?

3. What prevents you from expressing gratitude?

  1. 1. I feel like I say "thank-you" a lot, but I know I'm missing opportunities all the time. At restaurants I try to thank the servers, even if they're simply filling a water glass. Writing thank you notes, or even thank you emails, texts, etc. is also important.

    2. A couple of times people have thanked me extravagantly, whatever I had done didn't seem like too big of a deal, but it must have been for them. I think sometimes it's hard to receive the gratitude too, we say - no problem - instead of simply saying 'you're welcome'

    3. If I feel like I'm interrupting something else, forgetfulness (sometimes), laziness (esp when it comes to writing it out).
