The Psalmist proclaims: “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Enter his gates with thanksgiving. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever” (Psalm 100, excerpts).

Fall is a season of thanksgiving—first with Canadian Thanksgiving in October and this week with Thanksgiving in the U.S. For what are you shouting for joy in this season of thankfulness? Perhaps it’s the many ways you have been blessed by creation and its bounty or the ways you have been blessed with love, hope, family, friends, or a job. Maybe you are grateful for your church and its ministries.

Throughout our lives, God blesses us with love and hope, with connection and creation. Praise be to God!

In hope, 
Amy Gingerich

White settlers saw land for the taking.
They failed to consider the perspective of the people already here.

For 500 years, the church has disenfranchised indigenous peoples. Harm was done in the name of Christ. Will we follow Jesus in righting these wrongs?
