the spirit of thanksgiving
Kip Tabb, writing for the North Beach Sun, tells the story of Liberty Fellowship Church on the Outer Banks that has been feeding 300+ people every Thanksgiving for the past five years. A remarkable achievement of volunteer effort and community generosity.
“Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday, a perfect combination of family, food and tradition. It is at its core the very definition of the fellowship that binds a community.
Yet for some, family and food seems in short supply; for some the memory of family tradition seems lost in the hardships of daily life. There is a void, a sense that on a day everyone should be celebrating what is best about life, not everyone has a seat at the table.”
