Rev. Michelle's Message November 23, 2023

Whatever your plans for today may be, I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! May your day be filled with good food, good company, and good cheer!

I offer you this prayer of thanksgiving by Harriet Kofalk:


in a moment of peace

I give thanks

to the source of all peace

as I set forth

into the day

the birds sing

with new voices

and I listen

with new ears

and give thanks


the flower called Angel’s Trumpet


in the breeze

and I give thanks

my feet touch the grass

still wet with dew

and I give thanks

both to my mother earth

for sustaining my steps

and to the seas

cycling once again

to bring forth new life

the dewdrops

become jewelled

with the mornings’ sun-fire

and I give thanks

you can see forever

when the vision is clear

in this moment

each moment

I give thanks. -Harriet Kofalk

And to help you get even more into an “attitude of gratitude” on this Thanksgiving Day, I invite you to click on the link below and enjoy this very short meditative video, “Eating Gratefully,” from the Center for Spirituality in Nature:

As you enjoy your Thanksgiving meal today, you may want to take time to consider all that went into creating the meal before you. Allow your heart to be filled with deep gratitude and appreciation for nature and all it gives us.

Autumn Blessings,

Rev. Michelle
