Grace and Gratitude

This issue of Call to Worship is devoted to the classic Reformed theme of grace and gratitude. The rhythm of grace and gratitude—God's gracious action and our grateful response—is the heartbeat or pulse that animates Christian faith, life, and worship. We love because God first loved us (1 John 4:19).
