Still a time for giving thanks
Reports coming out of the Middle East and other flashpoints of the world have sometimes been discouraging this fall. Phrases such as escalating violence and suicide bombers have been all too familiar in newspaper columns and airwaves. So when Americans and others take time this week to give thanks for their blessings, they might wonder how much they actually have to be grateful for. Yet they might consider that there's a power inherent in the very idea of Thanksgiving—an acknowledgment of good, and an expectation of more good, that is actually at the heart of prayer.
