Yesterday, as I worked at church, I roasted a turkey. Today, I will do a second one.
But I want people who come to church for Thanksgiving dinner to have enough to eat. I believe one of the primary responsibilities of any pastor is to offer feeding to the people who come to the church.
I take this quite literally.
I also offer spiritual food (Jesus is my resource). Thanksgiving is a day that combines both–which is why it is one of my favorite days to pastor.
But I do feel for the turkey. I give thanks to it for dying that others might eat, as I thank God for giving me the opportunity to serve.
