Happy Thanksgiving!

It does not seem proper to leave the "Good Word" alone on Thanksgiving, particularly with the last post clinging to the top of the list. I have meant to post earlier, but the end of semester and the Society of Biblical Literature meeting in New Orleans gobbled up my time. Thanks so much for reading this blog and giving me an opportunity to speak to you. It is a joy for me to write and be read and to think about the things you have to say. It is mostly an honor to be able to interpret scripture with you and for you; it is a responsibility that I take seriously, and I give thanks for the vocation I have been given.

I wish you all of God's blessings on this Thanksgiving. One of the readings for today is Sirach 50:22-24:

"And now, bless the God of all,
who has done wondrous things on earth;
Who fosters people’s growth from their mother’s womb,
and fashions them according to his will!
May he grant you joy of heart
and may peace abide among you;
May his goodness toward us endure in Israel to deliver us in our days."

Thanks be to God.
