As Thanksgiving approaches, we all begin to consider the blessings received from Almighty God this past year. I found a few things for all of us to be thankful for, which may have slipped by us. We should also be thankful for:
So, when we sit around our Thanksgiving tables this month, laden with turkey and trimmings, perhaps we may sit for a moment, with a smile on the brink of tears, knowing that we are safe and content, when so many cannot be. And when that necessary moment passes, we should do well to ponder “how rich we are in the sight of God;” for we have hope, not fear; we have freedom, not oppression; we have opportunity, not despair.
When we “Encounter the Lord”, this Thanksgiving, let us become more deeply aware that God can awaken within us a new perspective on the lives we lead. It is around this table where we are gathered as one people, giving thanks to the Father, for all that we are, and all that we have been given.
We are different, come join us
