Happy Secular Thanksgiving
11/24/2011—We all have blessings to give thanks for. And if we disagree about the nature of the giver, or even if the word giver makes any sense, we certainly cannot disagree about “gift” itself. We did not invent ourselves and we are not responsible for all that we are and have. If, as I hope. we are surrounded by love, we should give thanks, for we are not the agents of our good fortune. And if this is not a matter of good fortune, but of the graciousness of reality itself, then we should give thanks for that mystery as well.
