The Acceptable Thanksgiving

Our appreciation of the common kindnesses of neighbors and friends impels us to make due and loving acknowledgment and a return of kindred favors when opportunity offers, but gratitude for higher and nobler gifts. especially for intellectual and spiritual quickening. finds its true and legitimate expression in responsiveness and receptivity of heart. a consecration of life to the ends for which our benefactor stands.
