For What Shall We Give Thanks?
The wheel of the year has turned again.
Once more the Thanksgiving season has arrived.
How shall we sing our song of gratitude now?
For what shall we give thanks?
For this moment;
for friends near and far;
for our breath;
for courage and clarity;
for the tables round which we gather;
for the food we enjoy with friends,
seasoned with love and memory;
for the sun and moon and stars in the sky;
for the trees who have seen so much
and still stand proud, stretching themselves to the sky;
for the bright voices of children;
for the wisdom of elders;
for actions that bless the world;
for hard work that makes a difference;
for music and art and celebration;
For all these things, we give thanks
as we worship together.
