This Week's Congregational Prayer:
Thank you, Lord! Thank you for your love and grace, for your peace and joy, for your sending your Son to intercede on our behalf! As I gather with family and friends this Thanksgiving, I thank you for the harvest season once again, a harvest that produces food for the world. Food that comes from the sowing of seed, that dies in the soil and comes to life as it is given a new body as you determined. Thank you for this illustration of the resurrection! Glory and praise to you, Heavenly Father. Amen.
