    Words to live by...

    We have so much, yet many Americans feel dissatisfied. Somehow the full table, symbol of abundance to the pilgrims, is not enough. We yearn for something far beyond the material satisfaction. Find your place in history this Thanksgiving by stretching beyond your table. Celebrate your survival by offering peace and sharing with your neighbors. Make the shift from an illogical feeling of lack to the recognition of abundance. Invite the Spirit to your feast, and prepare to feed the world.
