GRACEnotes, November 25
Central to the Christian faith are the twin themes of grace and gratitude. Grace is the indescribable mercy of God who loves us with no strings attached. Gratitude is the praise of God that wells up within us in thanksgiving for all that God provides – life, faith, food and clothing, friends and family, work, freedom, keen minds and bodies, curiosity, the capacity to learn, and so much more. Even as our national observance of Thanksgiving sets a feast as the centerpiece of celebration, so also the Christian Church has as its center a Great Thanksgiving meal – a morsel of the Bread of Life for now, a foretaste of the feast that is to come. Rejoice because of grace; live in a spirit of gratitude.
Linn-Benton Food Share will receive the money and food we collect through Tuesday, December 8. Every little gift adds up. Drop some noisy or quiet money in the jar on the table during Tuesday lunch or bring non-perishable food to fill up the box by the front door. Endorsed by your Student Leadership Team, this is one small gesture to express our gratitude and share our abundance with others.

Whether you're traveling to join family for the holiday, linking up with friends for a local Thanksgiving celebration, or enjoying the weekend solo, may the spirit of Thanksgiving permeate your heart and home. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless God’s holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all God’s benefits." (Psalm 103:1-2)
