THANKSGIVING Reflections and Prayer - November 27, 2014

Exactly ten years ago near the end of a Twenty-two day tour of New Zealand and Australia, Dianne and I celebrated Thanksgiving just miles from Australia's Great Barrier Reef. During our trip we traveled by Bus, Plane, Train, and Boat with people of many races, religions, cultures, backgrounds and aspirations.

We crossed the International Date Line and the Equator. We visited Cook Mountain where we could look down into the clouds. We celebrated the Māori, the Aborigine, and all people of the region. We visited Sacred Aborigine lands including Aires Rock. We Dined in the Desert. We got up close with the Kangaroo, the Koala Bear, and from a distance viewed the Dingo and other things with sharp teeth. We enjoyed a Thanksgiving Dinner prepared by a Chef who had never cooked a Thanksgiving Dinner, and it was served in a country that does not celebrate the Holiday. While in Sydney, I addressed a meeting of the Australian Investors including a delegation from China. Truly, barriers fell and hope rose!

As we reflect this Thanksgiving on the astounding, the amazing, the memorable; our sincere wish and prayer is that today we will all be grateful for those in our midst and prayerful for others (the seen, unseen, the known, the unknown); and that we might be able to make a friend, and forgive an enemy. This world is in desperate need of healing, and it can start now.
