Dear Trinity Episcopal Church,

I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. This year I'm grateful to spend some time with my in-laws in the Dallas area and to connect with Maggie's side of our family. As we gather around the Thanksgiving table, I will offer prayers of gratitude for you and for this parish.

Please join me in prayer for this holy day of Thanksgiving:

Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them. Make us, we pray, faithful stewards of your great bounty, for the provision of our necessities and the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

With peace,
