"Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity." —Pastor Louie Giglio

There is a new series on TV called Joan of Arcadia. It is about a teenager named Joan. Joan is a pretty typical teen in that she gets in trouble at school for talking and failing to do her homework. She has problems at home. The biggest problem being that her brother was in a car accident and is a paraplegic. What is unique about Joan is that God talks to her, sort of like God used to talk to Joan of Arc. The thing is, God appears to her as a different person all of the time. One time God shows up as a buff looking high school boy. Another time God appears as a middle-aged black lady serving food in the lunch line. God appears to her as a jogger, someone at the bus stop or the janitor. Sometimes it takes a minute to realize, “Oh, this person isn’t just the janitor, this is God!” I like the show. It like the premise of the show that God appears to us all the time in other people.
