On Thanksgiving morning, more than 10,000 runners gathered in Marietta Square to participate in the 20th annual Gobble Jog, benefitting MUST Ministries. This year, Cornerstone was the largest group at the race and even earned a coveted spot on the Gobble Jog t-shirt! And for one of our Cornerstone participants, this race was a powerful reminder that no matter what setbacks we face, we can dig deep even when the next step feels impossible.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we all know we’re supposed to be grateful. But if we’re really honest, it’s not always that easy. If giving thanks feels a little extra challenging this year, Cornerstone webmaster, Katie Tuck, encourages us to be thankful in the hard and in the brokenness because it is there that we often sense the presence and love of God.
Today, we’re sharing a few practical ways your family can have a purposeful Thanksgiving. It is our hope that this brings encouragement leading up to the holiday season as we focus our hearts on all that God has done for us!
Memories were made, meals were shared, and many miles were walked! This past week, our 8th-grade students were able to take a step back in time and see where the birth of our great nation started. Today, our students share that the common thread throughout the trip was the Christian foundation of our nation and how the hand of God was in it all.
