The Taser's Edge


Thanksgiving Day

Christian holiday or not, related to any real historical event or not, I need a reminder to be thankful.  Turkey and yams, daily bread, loaves and fish.  Yes, please, and thank you.

Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them.  Make us, we pray, faithful stewards of your great bounty, for the provisions of our necessities and the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.  (1979 BCP, p. 246)
