In anticipation of Thanksgiving

Here's a quote that was emailed out by Sojourners today:

This nation is affluent and has more than it needs. The realization that what we have is a free gift can deepen our desire to share this gift with others who cry out for help. When we bless the fruits of the harvest, let us at least realize that blessed fruits need to be shared.

- Henri J.M. Nouwen

And another: "From whom much is given, much is required." This is definitely worth remembering.

    Thank you for that Ellie...will you please tell us the source of the scripture you quoted about much being required from those to whom much has been given. I like to bring that to mind whenever I am tempted to feel sorry for myself.

  2. Hi, Annie.

    The reference is Luke 12:48.
