Thanks be to God

Could we be grateful in advance

for the stumble that becomes the dance

for the tears that dry to eventual laughter

This weekend we celebrate Thanksgiving Sunday. Before the turkey comes out of the oven, before the potatoes get their mashing, let’s offer thanks to God for EVERYTHING. Meister Eckhardt said, “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” Let’s see how the practice of gratitude can help us love our problems into becoming our gifts.  We’ll also welcome two new members into our church community and enjoy the choir’s gift of music.  See you online or in person on Sunday at 10!
