Happy Thanksgiving!

Generous God,

we have been welcomed at Your table.
a feast of love and mercy
for the body and soul.

May what we have received here today
continue to strengthen our faith and our resolve
to be your hands and feet in the world,
working together so that everyone
may find a place at Your table. Amen.

 As we give thanks for the bounty at our tables, may we remember to give thanks, pray for and stand in solidarity with the workers who bring this food to our tables.  We invite you to watch this short Thanksgiving Blessing video from Kairos.
And here is a fun idea for kids - making a simple prayer cube with various table graces.
