Text Box: Let us Gather and Give Thanks for our Neighbors! A Table for All—an interfaith, intercultural community meal centered on our shared gratitude to God Hosted by the Fort Morgan Islamic Center and the Fort Morgan Ministerial Alliance Sunday, November 13 at 4:00 p.m. Pioneer Elementary School 415 Spruce St. What to Bring: food that says “home” to you! It might be a main dish, a salad, or a dessert. As we strive to be welcoming to all our neighbors’ needs, please provide a label with the name of the recipe and all included ingredients. Common to all of our faith traditions is the importance of giving thanks to God for the provision of all of our needs. Additionally, our faith traditions teach us to welcome the stranger and to love our neighbor. It is with this motivation that we are coming together for a meal to give thanks together for the gift of being part of this community. From the first recorded celebration meal in 1621 to the time Thanksgiving became a national holiday in the midst of the Civil War and to today, Thanksgiving has symbolized people of different backgrounds, ideologies, religions, races, and ethnicities coming together to give thanks. In a proclamation for the first Thanksgiving, President Lincoln encouraged all Americans to ask God to “commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife [and to] heal the wounds of the nation.” These words are just as applicable today as many among us have experienced such suffering and as we strive to bring healing to our community and nation through the acknowledgement of the ways we are all interconnected.

Please help us keep up to date on prayer requests by emailing me or the church.

Presbytery Prayer Calendar: Presbytery meeting on Thursday

Household Prayer: Morning

God of light,

thank you for another day.

With each hour,

may I be watchful for signs of your grace,

ready to show your love,

and eager to tell the good news of Jesus Christ.

Make me more faithful than I was yesterday,

and lead me in the paths of righteousness. Amen.

Household Prayer: Evening

Thank you for the challenges and blessings of this day, O God.

If I kept faith with you, thank you for your Spirit’s help.

If I looked away from you, turn me back around.

As night falls, I relinquish my pride and my fear

and entrust all whom I love to your care,

with prayers for a peaceful rest;

in Jesus’ name. Amen.
