This week’s “Embracing Faith” article will focus on Embracing Faith through Relationships.

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” -Romans 12:10


As Thanksgiving approaches, one thing is for sure, this year’s celebration will be different from others.


Many of us won’t be traveling to see loved ones or participating in Thanksgiving Eve or the day of festivities.


Annual traditions like the Macy’s New York City Thanksgiving Parade will be a new virtual experience for spectators, and sporting events that we usually watch will be vastly different.


Yet, even with all of these changes, it is essential to remember why we celebrate Thanksgiving and why this year, more than ever, we need to have gratitude for one another and life, in general.


This year has caused so much heartache and devastation worldwide that it made many feel like we were heading towards a never-ending disaster.


If you are fortunate enough to be with family members or loved ones this year on Thanksgiving, be grateful.


If you have to share a dinner with family members or loved ones via FaceTime or remote video chatting, be grateful.


If you had to change your plans and will not be traveling to see family members or loved ones, be grateful.


This Thanksgiving, be grateful for your health and the health of your family members and loved ones. Those who are dealing with grief and loss would do anything to trade spots with you.


No matter your relationship with your family members or loved ones, be grateful for them on Thanksgiving.
