This coming Sunday, May 16, is Gratitude Sunday. As part of our lead up to thinking about and praying over our commitments to our Capital Campaign, Hope Rising: Embracing Our Future at Fremont, we are going to talk about the spiritual practice of gratitude. Often, gratitude or thankfulness, is defined in passive terms. For example, someone does something kind for you, and as a response, you are grateful for that gesture. But, gratitude can also be understood in active terms. It can be something you demonstrate or show. You can practice gratitude.

Fremont Family: Yesterday felt historic. When the news came that the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial had reached a verdict, I held my breath. It seemed to me that time stood still. That life hung in the balance. Maybe I am being a bit dramatic? I don't think so. When the judge read the jury's findings, Chauvin found guilty on all three counts, I was overcome with emotion. I found myself sobbing with deep relief. I know I was not the only one.
