Past Blues Reflection
excerpt from Pastor Dave's November 16 Vespers reflection:
Next Thursday is Thanksgiving, a day of gratitude. It is a nice polite family holiday that I actually believe is about a radical act, a counter cultural act...
...Giving thanks is a radical action because every time we say thank you, we are implictly acknowledging that others have done things for us, that we do not live isolated lives but lives that depend on others. Saying thank you is a declaration of dependence. We depend on the barista to make coffee for us, the cook, the cab driver, the physician....
Thanksgiving puntures a hole in the myth of the rugged individual. We need each other.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
