Thanking God for You Today

Dear friend,

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. As this year draws to a close, Ann and I kneel in awe of all God is doing around the world.

I want you to know that I am thanking God for you today. Thank you for striving to learn and grow as a servant leader. Thank you for waking up each day and eating challenges for breakfast. Thank you for persevering when the work is hard and thankless. Thank you for pressing into difficult relationships with grace and truth. Thank you for practicing what you preach and holding to your convictions when it seems like you are standing alone. Thank you for those times you have shunned the crowd and sought to please the Audience of One.

Thank you for living, loving and leading well.

Shoulder to shoulder,


By Ken
