Thanksgiving Meditation

Each year we spend time with biblical stories of gratitude as we come together for worship. And, then there is the pie after the worship service. Each year we have fellowship and share with our conversations what we are thankful for. Our gratitude usually encompasses themes around health, family, community, companionship, and intimacy.

As with so many other changes, Thanksgiving will be different this year from what we have been accustomed to. There will be no in person worship or pie social. Instead, we are offering a “thanksgiving meditation”. This resource now available to view. It is approximately 25 minutes in length and may be shared with those gathering around a table in your home or someone who may not be able to be physically present. You may even wish to take a quiet moment and watch it after all of the activities as a gift to yourself.
