During Advent worship, people were invited to write down the people, places, and experiences which had brought them hope, peace, joy, and love.

All that gratitude for all those gifts became part of a beautiful, playful and colorful collage of thanksgiving.

Very grateful for the artists who made all this possible, for the outpouring of thanks and for One from who all blessings flow.

It was hard to see this bulletin board disappear.  But, the thanksgiving stays in our lives and enriches the world.

The greatest gift one can give is thanksgiving.
In giving gifts, we give what we can spare,
but in giving thanks we give ourselves.  – Brother David Steidl-Rast.
