No. 9 on the list of most-read posts on this blog appeared on November 28, 2005, and simply linked to a sermon my pastor, Tope Koleoso, had preached on gratitude. Presumably it is a mark of the high percentage of my readers who are also preachers. It rates quite highly in a Google search for a “Thanksgiving Sermon.”
Tope’s sermon was very warmly received at the time. Oddly, it was preached entirely by coincidence on the Thanksgiving weekend as he felt prompted to preach on gratefulness. I am thrilled that it is one of Tope’s sermons that is the most visited sermon page on this blog in spite of the fact that all that is available is a link to the mp3 file. I want to give tribute to my pastor, and thank him for all of his love and behind-the-scenes support of this blog.
Tope Koleoso, my pastor (Jubilee Church, London), didn’t even realize that it was Thanksgiving this weekend and preached an outstanding sermon on the need to be grateful. There were some amazing parts where he opened his heart and shared some of the experiences he has had which led him to gratefulness. It was one of the best sermons— if not the best sermon— I have heard from him. You can download the mp3 or listen to it right here:
