I went to the Thanksgiving Service tonight. Vineland has a group of ministers, priests, and rabbis called the Ministerium. The various churches and synagogs throughout the city get together and help the poor and homeless. The offering is used for this mission. The priest from the Greek Orthodox Church spoke on being generous and God will return the gifts to you. I wasn't able to give as much as I have in other years but I gave what I could. All those attending are given a bottle of sparkling cider and invited to the social hall for refreshments. The ladies of St. Isadore the Farmer make homemade cakes, pies, and cookies. The tables had centerpieces of sweet potatoes and winter squashes. We were invited to take some home with us. I brought home a large sweet potatoe, an acorn squash, and a butternut squash. I will have enough for dinner for a week. God did indeed give gifts back to me and I am thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving.
