Saturday afternoon there was a blessing for a Habitat House that several of our churches participated in building. As we took a picture at the service’s end, one of the volunteers told me that this was the best part of his week. He said, “I am being thankful by doing thankful.”
Being thankful by doing thankful.
We are blessed to be a part of a connection that understands we should be thankful: for God’s grace, for our place in the Body of Jesus, for having the opportunities we are so often given to be thankful by doing thankful.
This Thanksgiving, know that I am grateful to you—all the people of The Capital District–for the many kind and generous ways you have received me. And I am thankful for the ways you do thankful.
That set of thanksgivings, the being and the doing, makes us into Jesus’ people. Nice company.
O God, how precious is your steadfast love!
All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings. [Psalm 36:7]
