Life has taught us that love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Vegan Thanksgiving Peaceful Potluck 2006

It looks like we have one more thing to be thankful for this year---an upbeat and supportive news report on EVEN's potluck by Andy Peterson of KVAL TV.

Thanksgiving Grace - 2006 EVEN Gathering

We gather together today to celebrate and to give thanks for the many gifts that have been given to us.

  • for our friends and for our families, here today or not;
  • for all our fellow creatures with whom we share the world and without whom our time on this planet would be barren and profoundly lonely;
  • for the beautiful and wondrous natural world in which we get to spend our time;
  • for our miraculous bodies for which we try to show our appreciation by keeping them in good health;
  • and, for our glorious gift of free will with which we try to make compassionate choices.

We give thanks for all of these;
we ask for guidance to not take any of them for granted.

We also humbly ask for special blessings:

  • for EVEN member and friend, Sandy Itzkowitz, who is recovering from a serious bicycle accident;
  • on everyone here today, and those who are not;
  • on children who go to bed hungry and unprotected;
  • for voiceless animals---our friends---who are oppressed, abused and exploited;
  • for Mother Earth---our home---to keep her safe from the ravages of pillage and greed;
  • for anyone and everyone suffering in pain or confusion.

We humbly ask for these special blessings.
[Let's take a moment of silence here for our individual thanks and blessings.]
May we keep peace and compassion in our hearts throughout the year.
Thank you.
