Thanksgiving image
There is no doubt this has been a year unlike any other in recent history. We continue to suffer from the unrelenting Covid-19 pandemic that has ravaged our country and world since early 2020. We have seen riots and social unrest as our country tries to understand and address the racial and social issues that have divided us for so long. We have endured a long and tumultuous presidential election that has given rise to uncertainties and fears on both side of the political perspective. It is no wonder that so many of us are carrying the stress and anxiety of these times like a heavy weight around our shoulders.

Where does a person find hope when life at times seems so out of control? How can we, as a people of faith, find the strength we need to trust in the God who promises to be with us, in all things? How can we give thanks even in times such as these?

These are questions we invite you to consider with us as we journey through Thanksgiving week and celebrate again the day of Thanksgiving. Through daily scripture reflections and prayer, we invite you to hear the words of God’s faithful people. Hear how they found their hope, and gave thanks, throughout all the seasons of life. May these daily devotions and Thanksgiving service bring you peace during this holiday season, and may you too experience God’s presence with you, in all things.

Your pastors at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church,
