Thinking about Thanksgiving

St. Barnabas will have one service on Thanksgiving Day, at 9:00 am.  The service will include the following reading from the Letter of St. James:   

Do not err, my beloved brethren.  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.   

In other words, unlike the sun and moon that come and go, God, the creator of all the heavenly bodies, is unfailingly kind and generous to us.  We invite you to gather with us on Thanksgiving morning to put the holiday into perspective.  In the swirl of family, friends, food and sometimes controversy, it can be comforting to keep your gaze fixed on God, to whom thanks and praise are due and with whom there is no variation.
