Thanksgiving in America – By Bishop Robert C. Wright

Nov 21, 2016

Gatherings around the Thanksgiving meal prompt reflections, silent or spoken, individual or collective. Hearts swell with gratitude for life, health, hope, community, safety and opportunity. Soaring awe and deep gratitude present themselves.

In those moments, my gratitude lets me see you for what you are, brother and sister. No less. These aren’t simply feelings. There’s something to this.
