Thanksgiving Eve – Year B

12248115_1078771845500371_4782581546990762542_oThis evening (25 November 2015) I had the opportunity to preach at the Thanksgiving Eve liturgy at my sponsoring parish The Church of the Redeemer, Providence RI.  The lessons for the sermon can be found here.     Finally, this sermon was preached without a manuscript, but you can listen to the recording over on SoundCloud.

I wish all of you and your families  a very happy, healthy,  and blessed Thanksgiving.

Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them. Make us, we pray, faithful stewards of your great bounty, for the provision of our necessities and the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.  (Collect for Thanksgiving)
