From Pastor Pat: A Thanksgiving Blessing
What are you most grateful for?
(Posted November 25, 2015)
This past week many people have been posting what they are most grateful for this week on social media. Among the lovely posts about gratitude for family and friends and undeserved blessings was one from a friend of mine who simply said, in the midst of this Thanksgiving largesse, that she is grateful for sweatpants with an elastic waistband.
But beyond this bit of levity, I happened to spy a Thanksgiving benediction by my colleague Rev. Maren Tirabassi. This is what I’d like to borrow and bestow upon you all this week.
So for this Thanksgiving season …
May you be blessed in your waking and in your sleeping.
May you be blessed in your travels and in your homing.
May you be blessed when you give and when you receive,
when you sit at tables of welcome
and when you walk together in peace.
Pastor Pat Kriss
