Oregonian Chloe Schwabe, now working as an Ecojustice Specialist for the National Council of Churches Ecojustice Program in Washington, D.C., sent along this information earlier today:
Thanksgiving evokes the tastes of turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie. As we thank God for the glorious bounty of the harvest, we can look at ways to be good stewards of farms and farming communities. For Thanksgiving and the harvest season, the NCC Eco-Justice Program is offering a new resource entitled, At the Lord’s Table: Everyday Thanksgiving.
This resource highlights the need for justice for the land and farming communities and includes sermon starters, liturgical pieces, adult and youth education materials, and ideas for action.

There is perhaps no greater cause right now than the protection of God’s creation.
