MEANING OF THANKSGIVING …. EXPRESSIONS OF GRATITUDE
¨ Gather in Unity – People come together, in celebration of a common purpose. It’s a time for reconciliation of differences, sharing our victories and our struggles, as we find strength and hope.
¨ To Teach the Young – Each generation brings purpose and significance to the richness of our heritage. Faded pictures, sentimental knick-knacks, even the prayer of Thanksgiving before the meal, all form a Thanksgiving family legacy.
¨ To Prepare the Heart – We humbly reflect upon all the gifts (family, friends, health) that saturate our lives. By “giving-thanks,” we choose to extend ourselves and give to others less fortunate. Out of the abundance of our hearts, we are able to offer resources to help others.
