Along with so many of us in Universal Brotherhood, Thanksgiving holds a very special place in my heart and spirit. Having always loved the idea of serving others and sharing my bounty with family and friends alike, this holiday most especially fills me with joy.
However, as we approach this quintessential American celebration, many throughout our country and around the world find themselves in a state of war and deep despair. Perhaps as we sit around our tables, overflowing with good food and libations, we can also hold in our hearts prayers for the whole world. As Universal Brotherhood Ministers, we have a special opportunity to be of service in thought, word and deed. To me, there is no better time than at Thanksgiving.
This year, on Thursday, November 23, 2017, may we of Universal Brotherhood be a voice unified in truth, honor and dignity, spreading a sense of hope and hospitality to everyone we encounter physically, and all those we hold in our minds and hearts.
In each individual home, as we bless the feast this Thanksgiving Day, may we remember all of the many troops stationed around the world, protecting our freedoms and our rights to enjoy this American holiday. From the first toast to the last bite of pumpkin pie, treasure the moments, enjoy the closeness of loved ones and sit in deep gratitude for all that is good in your life.
Please know that you are held in the hearts and minds of not only the Founders of Universal Brotherhood, Rick and Jeni Prigmore, but every member of the Corporate Board, including our Executive Director, Robin Morini. We shower you with love and genuine affection on a daily basis and are all better for your participation and your presence in this ministry. May abundant blessings grace your life and the lives of all those you hold dear.
A very Happy Thanksgiving to you!
