Today is our American holiday celebrating food - Thanksgiving. We give thanks for all of our many blessings and celebrate by eating lots of food. Thanksgiving is not about gifts nor does it celebrate a saint. For most of us, it’s simply a feast.
The letter to Timothy reminds us to give thanks for everyone.
But there are others who do not. And I wonder how God is going to provide for them?
Last Friday, I was on a subway car in Manhattan, returning to my hotel after a sumptuous lunch with some other church people who wrote sermons and reflections for a book that is being sold to benefit homeless ministries in New Jersey. That book is called “Hungry, and You Fed Me.” I was full and thankful for the food and the company and for my many blessings. I was well satisfied.
Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours.
