November 24 - Many of us prefer THANKSGIVING to most other holidays. It’s not spoiled by commercialism, the meal is based on comfort food, the football is fabulous and the day revolves around family. With the Pilgrims, the underlying principle had one other key element, gratitude to God. It remembers that despite our hard work, all good things ultimately come from God. The Almighty who is Creator, Sustainer, Sanctifier is intimately involved in our lives daily. "Praise God from whom all blessings flow" is a hymn we all have voiced. Besides Eucharist (giving thanks) that day be certain to dedicate your meal to the source of life itself.
