Ever sat around the table and said “I don’t really feel thankful for that, …I earned it?” I have? In this Thanksgiving service, we will be called to step past the assumption that we “should” be thankful, and take a good hard look at what we earn and we are just given. When the tally is completed, and if the minister has done his job, we will all but fall on our face with the realization of all that we don’t control.
