Thanksgiving weekend opening words
“We sing now together our song of thanksgiving,
rejoicing in goods which the ages have wrought,
for Life that enfolds us, and helps and heals and holds us,”
goes the hymn.
Buehrer’s lyrics also express gratitude
for “community now in the making, in every far continent, region and land.”
Let us give thanks for *all* of our blessings:
the material goods
and the community of our human cousins.
For the next sixty minutes,
and for the rest of our lives,
may we be aware of the Spirit of Life,
evolving within and among us,
which inspires and connects
and, indeed, helps and heals and holds us.
So may we be.
