This is my favorite time of year. I love Thanksgiving, when friends and family take time to be together and gather around the table to celebrate all that we have to be thankful for.
As we make the arrangements for our respective feasts this week and think about our reasons for giving thanks, please remember those around us who may not have as much as we do. Our Sunday School class is adopting a local family and providing the ingredients for their Thanksgiving dinner. Others are inviting those without family nearby into their homes. I know our local Rescue Mission is accepting donations to feed those in need a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.
There are many avenues available to helping those in need. If you don't know of one in your area, there are links to a few options in the "Food Links" list on this blog (CROP Hunger Walks, Feeding America, and Habitat for Humanity). Thanks!
