Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday. Every year Cheryl and I travel downstate to enjoy a (downright glorious) meal with family and close friends. After gorging myself on turkey, candied yams and pie, I look forward to claiming my spot on the couch and watching football until I slip into a mild coma.
Greatest… holiday… ever.
In addition to enjoying time with friends and family around the table, I am hoping you’ll join me in doing something to bless “the least of these” this Thanksgiving.
The Open Door Mission is a ministry that provides food, clothing and the good news of the gospel to the homeless in Rochester. They serve over 100,000 meals per year to those living on our cold and violent streets. I have seen first-hand the work they do in ministering to the poorest of the poor in our community, and it is a cause I wholeheartedly believe in.
For a donation of just $1.87 you can help them provide a meal for someone in need at their Great Thanksgiving Banquet. (I’ll spend 30 times that much in gas alone getting downstate for that glorious meal I mentioned.) It doesn’t seem like much of a sacrifice to make sure another human being doesn’t go hungry while I’m on an all-day food bender.
Will you please join me in blessing others in my city this Thanksgiving by donating a few bucks?
