A Prayer of Thanksgiving
I found this poem – “The World is Mine” – in a collection of articles kept through the years. It was part of the message given by Rabbi Albert L. Raab at the community Thanksgiving Eve worship service held in our sanctuary in 1974. I hope that it touches your heart as it did mine.
“Today upon a bus, I saw a lovely maid with golden hair.
With feet to take me where I’d go,
As we prepare for family gatherings and feasts this Thanksgiving Day, let us remember that we are indeed a people blessed by God. I pray that every day for each one of you will be a day of giving thanks. May your ears be open to hear God’s Word, your eyes open to see the beauty of God’s creation and your feet ready to follow our Lord as we walk together this month.
May God bless you in your journey. See you in church!
-Ethelyn L. Fulton, Clerk of Session
