A Simple Thanksgiving by Raymond A. Foss
His turn around the table
to share what he is thankful for
this Thanksgiving season, this year
A simple thanksgiving
so like the first Thanksgiving
in Plimouth, so long ago
thankful for God, for this place
This land of ours, our home
our ability to believe, to worship
as our conscience, our faith guides
In a time of war, his words
a poignant reminder
of how much we truly have
to be thankful for,
each and every day

December 7, 2007
about the sharing of things we were thankful for
at the start of Church Council, 11/19/07,
Wesley United Methodist Church,
Concord, NH
This poem is based on Dan Haines,
Chair of the Evangelism Commission
