Thanksgiving, Thanksliving

Once again, the main altar of Bethany was filled with the generosity of spirit I so often see in that sanctuary! Here are the Health Kits for Refugees, a project our church sponsored. Inside each towel is a wash cloth and bar of soap, nail file, band-aids, a comb, and a toothbrush. People kindly assembled these kits, then brought them forward as an offering on Thanksgiving Eve.

The service once again included a ton of wonderful music - children's choir, adult choir, bells, organ, and this year, a liturgical dance! Here's the dancer, Sarah, with Pastor Ruth Ann and Pastor Ron. Such a graceful way to express our thanks for the ultimate sacrifice!

Ready for the Turkey Trot 2009 in Washington Park in Denver with the Glusenkamp Crew! Here's Sue Ann, Ron, Me, Caroline, and Noah, ready to hit the pavement on Thanksgiving Day. Four miles in beautiful weather (nearly 70 degrees!) with just lovely conversation. I'm one thankful camper!
