Amidst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season it is easy to forget that Thanksgiving was intended to be a spiritual day. It was meant to be a day of reflection, set apart from all other days specifically to acknowledge, with humble hearts, God’s loving provision.

Make this week a time of reflection, repentance, and new beginnings. Spend time in prayer and search out God’s will in the scriptures. Encourage one another. Share your blessings with those in need. Most importantly, take the time to acknowledge with gratitude and praise the blessings given to us by Almighty God.

"Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations (Psalm 100)."

On behalf of all the staff here at Koinonia House, may God bless you and your family this Thanksgiving Day.
