2018 #GratitudeChallenge

Several of our parish committees have banded together to help us celebrate gratitude! As a stewardship parish, Resurrection is committed to recognizing God’s many gifts and responding gratefully. Please join us in this month leading up to our nation’s remembrance of Thanksgiving to give thanks to God for all our many gifts.

Blessed by Less by Susan V. Vogt

Practical from start to finish, Blessed by Less shows how one woman’s journey into a simpler, less cluttered life can also be our journey and how taking a spiritual perspective on the matter can lead to abundant blessings we would have otherwise missed.

A Thanksgiving Prayer, by Rabbi Naomi Levy

Read on ritualwell.org

For the laughter of the children,
For my own life breath,
For the abundance of food on this table,
For the ones who prepared this sumptuous feast,
For the roof over our heads,
The clothes on our backs,
For our health,
And our wealth of blessings,
For this opportunity to celebrate with family and friends,
For the freedom to pray these words
Without fear,
In any language,
In any faith,
In this great country,
Whose landscape is as vast and beautiful as her inhabitants.
Thank You, God, for giving us all these. Amen.
