Happy Thanksgiving

It seems like the clever scheme of a cunning enemy — the thick and looming web of consumerism, woven to cast an eerie fog over a holiday completely rooted in not shopping and the getting of many things, but in taking stock, counting blessings, giving thanks for what you already have.

Be sober and vigilant, dear ones, to savor and guard this as a time of cultivating gratefulness, treasuring togetherness, and focusing on the people, (and not the things), that matter most.


Take this moment – this one right here – to slow down, look up, see good and give thanks. It is fitting to begin a season of celebrating the coming of the Light of the World, by giving thanks.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. {Psalm 100:4}

Welcome to the Holidays, friends.
