In 2019 I wrote a series of posts on gratitude.
Thanksgiving feels different this year, and I’m finding I need reminders of the truths I wrote in the gratitude series last November:
“I am grateful for many things, like podcasts and music and friendships. But giving thanks in all circumstances does not mean denying the dark, hard, painful realities of human life. I still give thanks when I see a sunset. But I also engage more regularly in prayer and action related to the hardship in the world. Gratitude is a practice that can fortify us for the work of love, but it is not meant to be a practice that cuts us off from the needs of our fellow human beings.”
